The washer machine was dirty and then my white trousers got dirtier than before washed. You must clean it. I have noticed that problem to the reception.

Prima Hostel, da kann sich so manches Hotel in Deutschland eine Scheibe davon abschneiden. Sauberkeit war top und das personal sehr freundliche! Mit dem Kaffe hätte man Tote wecken können, das ist als ob zu sehen!

Hi there, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear the WIFI was having technical issues during your stay. Hopefully it didn't cause any inconvenience. Some bathroom facilities may be a little on the small side but we do have many bathrooms to facilitate all guests. We hope you enjoyed your stay and see you again some time.
