Chambre 131 très confortable et bien agencée proche des sanitaires et de la cuisine collective. Cantine infecte ouverte seulement les jour scolaire!?!!! un distributeur de boisson chaude et de collation sera un plus. Réunion ou rassemblement de jeunes TRÈS BRUYANT certains jours!

No tenian constancia de que habíamos pagado un depósito previo, por lo que la página no funciona muy bien. Creo que los baños (wc) son escasos para el n° de habitaciones. Sólo hay uno con lavabo, y si alguien se asea allí, queda bloqueado
