Les plus : la propreté (que ce soit les dortoirs, les salles communes,...), le confort (on peu difficilement espérer mieux pour une auberge de jeunesse et pour le prix). Les moins : La salle de bagages complètement pleine, le petit déjeuner payant (compris dans le prix de la chambre en Amérique du Nord)
