Grosse dégradation par rapport à des séjours passés dans l'auberge de Pontarlier, il semble qu'elle ait besoin d'une sérieuse réorganisation. Il a fallu supplier pour avoir coussin et lumières de chevet, nous ne fûmes éxaucées et à grand peine que pour l'un des vœux.

Good location. Kitchen was adequate but there was no space in the fridge if I wanted to use it - a larger one for all guests would be preferable and why could we not use the main dining room to eat in please? Also why are there no evening meals provided at the hostel? There is a huge catering kitchen going to waste. As a long distance walker, and I was not the only one, why is the hostel only open at 5.30pm. Could users of the hostel not have a secure part to rest out of the heat and get water.

Hübsche Herberge, "wirklich freies" Internet, schön gelegen in der Altstadt

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.
