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

amazing design, colourful and fresh. i just loved the yellow building blocks and beanbags in the lobby. the staff were really friendly to us, even though we arrived late in the night. the room was clean and because of the new furniture the smell of fresh wood was also really welcoming. maybe it would be good if you guys had an evening buffet as well, not just breakfast until noon.
