Wi-Fi was challenging at best. Laundry room, machines and view best ever of the 51 Countries I have been in, even highlighted it in my blog earthpersonally.com

Ich hätte mir gewünscht, dass mein Zimmer enen Ausblick von mehr als 1m bis zur nächsten Mauer gehabt hätte - uns dass kein Müll im Zwischenraum zwischen dem Fenster und eben dieser Mauer gelegen wäre.

I was very satisfied about the efficiency in the kitchen and about the large quantity of information that is available. I enjoyed being with you and hope to come back.

We had a private twin room,with a kettle, grounded coffee and tea. This YHA is central and everything downtown is easily acessible, common parts are nice There was only two concerns: the single glass window did not shut really properly, so there was a cold draft. And on the other side of the building was the backdoor of a restauranat, which the ventilation chimney making a strong hissing noise til the restaurant closed.
