Everything I needed
Ideal location adjacent to the Hauptbahnhof (main train station) & city centre. The dormitory, toilets, showers & communal areas were all clean. The WiFi worked perfectly with additional hubs across the floors to ensure a good connection. Multi lingual staff were pleasant & helpful. I made use of the offer to store luggage free of charge after officially checking out & was pleased that the storage room had around 100 lockers, rather than just being a room where bags could be interfered with. The only disappointment was that I was too fat for the largest available sweatshirt - would otherwise have bought one.
