Jugendherberge in sehr schöner Lage in einem sehr schönen Stadtviertel, Metro-Station in unmittelbarer Nähe, mehrere Museen zu Fuß erreichbar in ca. 25 Minuten. Alles sehr sauber (Gemeinschaftsküche, Toiletten, etc.). Mitarbeiterteam hat alles sehr gut organisiert und im Griff. Unser Einzelzimmer wurde jeden Tag gereinigt! Habe keinen Verbesserungsvorschlag.
