Alles in allem gutes Preis Leistungsverhältnis, Tisch und Sitzmöglichkeit im Zimmer wäre noch ein Plus, aber bei nur einer Übernachtung ging es auch ohne. Die Matratzen waren sehr gut und die Bettwäsche kuschelig. Komfortabel, weil weniger Gepäck wäre noch Handtücher standardmäßig mit anzubieten, klappt ja mit der Bettwäsche auch. Überraschend ruhig, trotz der zentralen Lage.

self-catering kitchen is good but those frying pans need to be changed. It is better to put a shelf in shower room so than we can place our stuff not only just hanging on the hook.

The location of the hostel is nice. My friends and I had a good time there. But there might be some fleas on the bed. Because after my stay for two nights, I found out that I was bit by the fleas which made me very itchy.
