You get what you pay for
We don’t usually stay at youth hostels so we can’t comment on the standard of this hostel compared to others. I felt uncomfortable using the sheets or towels that the hostel was charging for, and I was thankful to have brought my own. There was a questionable stain on the plastic mattress that I tried to avoid, whichmade sleeling uncomfortable. We had a private bathroom which was very clean, so that was good. The bins were emptied daily and the staff were kind. I think this hostel would be much better suited to people looking for a more social trip.

Manque d’ed
Ce n’est pas la faute de l’auberge mais des allemands qui font du bruit jusqu’à minuit et qui chantent à tue tête à 3 h du matin ce n’est pas optimal pour une nuit correcte

Very good 8.0
Die Rezeption war immer besetzt, unser Zimmer war sauber, allerdings etwas renovierungsbedürftig. Die Badezimmer haben keine Lüftung, das ist unangenehm. Der Innenhof ist ein angenehmer Platz um Sommerabende zu genießen. Das Frühstück war furchtbar, die Tische waren dreckig. Handtücher gibt es gegen Aufpreis
