It would be good to have some food bin in the kitchen, as this can be recycled also.

Youthhostel très moderne et confortable. L'emplacement le cadre de cet hotel n'est pas particulièrement charmant mais pratique et fonctionnel. Les aménagements sont tres propres et bien équipés. Super cuisine! Je n'ai pas aimé les fenêtres qui ne s'ouvrent pas avec juste ventilation. C'etait calme malgré que ce youth est particulierement grand.
