唯一的优点就是离火车站很近,步行5分钟左右。 去景点大概步行20分钟。 早餐5欧,不如去吃麦当劳。 但缺点很多。 青旅里面有酒吧,晚上很吵。戴了降噪耳机都听得到音乐声。 公共卫生间不分男女。有点脏。 混合宿舍紧贴酒吧。酒吧休息前别想着能睡觉。

El personal de recepción nunca me indicó que tenía un costo adicional el desayuno, cuando fui al comedor para desayunar el tipo de la cocina fue sumamente grosero al decirme que tenía que pagar. No había agua fría en el baño y no podía ducharme, se le reportó al personal de la recepción el problema y su respuesta fue que podía ducharme en el baño general. Yo pague una habitación privada con baño privado no tenía porque ducharme en un baño general. Al final tuve que hacerlo y tampoco había agua fría, pésimo servicio y actitud del fulano de la cocina Las calles aledañas al hostal estás muy sucias huelen a orines

Die Personals ist sehr freundlich und nett. Aber die Bedingungen sind furchtbar. Sehr dreckige und deswegen ecklige Duschkabinen und es wurde keine Handtücher zur Verfügung gestellt, obwohl ich voraussichtlich Call-Center angerufen und gefragt "Ob in diesem Preis Bettwäsche mit einem Handtuch inbegriffen sind?" und sie haben "ja" geantwortet. Sehr dreckige Fenster und sie sind von draußen mit einem Schloss geschloßen - dadurch konnte man überhaupt kein Tageslich lassen. Darüber hinaus stand es in meiner Buchungsbestätigung überhaupt keine Information, ob der Frühcstück inbegriffen ist oder muss er getrennt bezahlt werden. Aber der Standort ist sehr bequem - ganz nah zum Hauptbahnhof und alle Sehenswürdigkeiten. Die Schränke im Zimmer haben keine Schlösser! Und die Schlösser wurden separat an Reception für 5 Euro verkauft!!! Das ist unglaublich!
