    I stayed just 1 night in this hostel. Good hostel, very friendly. Nice kitchen with free coffee, sugar, tea and pancakes in the morning. All is pretty clean. I was in a 4 female beds dorm. Big room with lots of facilities. Inconvenients : the noise from the street at night and no air-con so could be hot in summer days. Good value

    Wir waren für eine Nacht im Hostel und haben ein Doppelzimmer gebucht. Das Zimmer war Ok, aber es gab nur kalte Duschen. Im Hostel wurde die ganze Nacht Lärm gemacht. Für eine Nacht ist es ok und die Lage ist gut, aber die Badezimmer sind ein Minus
