      Great design & staff but room needs improvements

      The staff and the hostel itself are amazing, but the room was definitely not worth it. Positive: The girl at reception gave us some great recommendations and took the time to explain everything we needed. The hostel has an incredible design and the atmosphere was one of a kind. It is located 15 walking minutes or 10 by tram from the city center, which was not perfect but OK. Negative: We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom. Unfortunately, the room was very small, making it extremely hot and wet during the night. If you like sleeping with an open window then that wouldn't be a problem. The shower in the bathroom was build in a way that you have to constantly press a button in order to have a constant running water, which was very annoying. The shower was built-in and there was absolutely no way to take a shower without washing your hair. The biggest disadvantages were the location of the room and the thin mattresses. The common kitchen where breakfast is served was just a few meters away from the room and both mornings I was awakened by the noise of plates and cutlery, both days before even 8 am, which is way too early for my holiday wake-up time. The other truly annoying thing was the mattress and the two single beds put together, which were advertised as a queen bed. Unfortunately, that was not the case and the beds were having a gap in between. The mattress was very thin and very, very uncomfortable, causing both of us horrible back pain in the mornings.

      Haben 2 Nächte in einem außergewöhnlichen Haus verbracht. Alles blitzeblank; liebevoll, originell und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Personal super freundlich! Ein Rundum-zufrieden-Paket für sonst hotelverwöhnte Gäste.

      Die Einrichtung ist echt cool. Insgesamt war ich sehr zufrieden. Die Dusche war das einzige, das ich beanstanden kann. Sie ist unpraktisch.

      OPERA ist ein Hostel, eben kein Hotel und will auch gar nicht mehr sein. Die Einrichtung und die gesamte Atmosphäre mit ausgewählten künstlerischen Möbeln wirken ruhig und angenehm, - und vor allem : sehr sauber. Ein paar Kunstobjekte verstärken den gediegenen Eindruck. Wer ein unruhiges Übernachtungs-Hostel erwartet hatte, sieht sich angenehm überrascht. Die Rezeption ist ständig präsent, muss aber im Grunde nur die Übersicht behalten, weil alles mit einem Minimum an Bürokratie funktioniert. Die Lage der "Opera" neben der urigen Alten Oper ist die eigentliche Attraktion. denn Erfurt ist immer ein lohnendes Ziel. Für 2 € kann man mit dem Bus Nr.51 schnell zum HBF kommen. Die Stadt hat sich nicht verbaut und hat ihren Charme seit Luther und den Bauernkriegen behalten. Übrigens - wo gibt es das sonst: Auf dem Domplatz stehen zwei "Kathedralen" nur 10 m voneinander getrennt in "Konkurrenz":Der katholische Dom und die evangelische Kirche. Beide prägen das Stadtbild. Erfurt - immer wieder , und dazu brauche ich kein Hotel mit Komfort. Den habe ich in Erfurt. P.S. Ein schlichter TV im Zimmer wäre schon angebracht.
