We liked the direct access to the courtyard corridor. Larger room of the dorm: Bed had damaged legs. Please advise guests that ordinary talking in the courtyard is amplified by the walls and can be heard very clearly at night. It would be helpful if there was a small kitchen facility for hostel users: for heating water to make tea or coffee, and a fridge with labelling facilities. This is standard in all hostels internationally.

Améliorer la propreté de la salle de bain et le bruit par les fêtards dans l'hôtel jusqu'à 4 am. Parler à voix basse devrait être imposé de 22H à 7am. Il y avait des gens sur le party presque toute la nuit dans une chambre voisine. Même avec des bouchons c'était très dérangeant. If you don't understand french, I said that bathroom needed to be clean and lot of noise all night in a room next to mine.
