    Yleiset tilat ja osa huoneen varustuksesta oli todella huonossa kunnossa ja suorastaan rikki. Huoneiden äänieristys oli huono, ihmisten liikkeet käytävällä kuului täysin selvästi huoneen sisälle. Lisäksi majoituspaikassa ei ole hissiä, mikä voi tulla liikuntarajoitteisille ikävänä yllätyksenä.

    Majoitus kelpasi. Hintaansa nähdän matala laatu. Pitäisi olla saippua suihkuun.

    Hostel staat beschreven voor zakenmensen, maar is feitelijk een goedkoop en permanent arbeidersonderkomen voor buitenlanders. Gelegen op een industrieterrein, onbewaakte parkeerplaats met busjes van werkvolk. Kamers zeer karig, gordijnen te klein, kasten stuk, slechts 1 toilet en douche per verdieping. Zeer gehorig, bijna geen oog dicht gedaan door andere bewoners. De verdieping waar wij zaten zat vol met Indiërs die tot 23:00 s’avonds en vanaf 04:00 smorgens curry staan te koken en eten. Vervolgens al zingend en fluitend over de gang blijven lopen en om de 5 minuten de deuren keihard dichtslaan. Een ervaring om nooit te vergeten en opnieuw mee te maken....

    Paikka oli vanha, tunkkainen ja likainen. Toisessa huoneessa ei ollut edes vesipistettä ja käytävän vessat olivat järkyttävän likaiset. En olisi uskonut Suomesta löytyvän näin kurjaa majoitusta.

    Korkeintaan hätämajoitukseen.

    Varaus, dokumentit ym sujuivat hyvin, nykyaikaisesti. Pysäköinti oli kätevästi pihalla ja ilmainen. Mutta hostellin fasiliteetit ovat 80-luvulta, huone kuuma, käytäviltä, wc:istä, keittiöstä ja suihkusta kuuluu kaikki äänet huoneeseen. Huoneen kalusteet ovat askeettisia, sänky liian pieni ja pimennysverhoa liian vähän. Sijainti paikassa missä ei ole mitään palveluita. Hinta pitäisi olla alempi tai em. Asioita korjata.
