People in the hallway were noisy the whole nicht and we slept really badly. Some personnel, kind of a nicht guard, would help to provide the possibility to sleep for everyone. There were people trying to tell them to be silent but it didn't help.

Thank you for your feedback! I'm sorry to hear that there was disturbance by other guests. At the moment we have a security guard checking the hostel every night, and the reception at Hotel Santa Claus is open 24/7, where you can report any problems. We will take notice of your feedback in developing our services. We hope to see you again someday! Kind regards, Helena/reception

La estancia es tranquila, sin ruidos. Necesitaría mejorar el tamaño de la cocina. Es demasiado pequeño. La zona del comedor no está mal.

No common room to meet new People, no staff in the building, no dorms. Actually no real hostel

Youth Hostels are usually places where you can meet other travellers and have a nice talk with the hostel keeper. That kind of opportunities are almost completely lost with your arrangement. Unfortunately.
