It is impossible to open a window, so it is very warm and stuffy during the night.

The staff was professional and friendly and polite. There was breakfast everyday, free wifi and much information provided at the front lobby. I liked the use of the card to control door lock and lighting in dorm, very high tech. It was also located close to the attractions I wanted to visit. A very good hostel.

Very comfortable and well run. Clean and tidy. Rooms well kept and decor good. In a central part of Town. No reservations about staying there again and recommending to others

Eine Waschmaschine wäre von Vorteil. Nicht nur die Fische würden sich wohl über eine schönere Teichgestaltung freuen.
