Zentral gelegenes angenehmes Haus. Sehr freundliche hilfsbereite Mitarbeiter. Die Duschen sind sehr eng und rutschig. Der Knopf für das Wasser ist sehr schwer gängig eingestellt und sperrt das Wasser beim Loslassen sofort ab. Man muss ihn immer gedrückt halten, was mit nassen Händen nur schwer geht. Die Sitze und die Spülungen der Toiletten sind schon stark abgenutzt. Die individuelle Küche ist sehr eng. Es ist nur wenig Geschirr vorhanden. Insgesamt ok.
