Excellent location
Stayed in a private double which was nice and spacious. Location of the hostel was excellent. Only small complaint was the mattress was definitely needing replaced but for the price would definitely recommend.

Fair 4,0
Die Küche war leider sehr dreckig und überall stand benutztes Geschirr rum. Die Badezimmer waren sehr abgenutzt. Für „große“ Personen ist duschen fast unmöglich, da die Duschköpfe sehr weit unten hängen und nicht verstellbar sind. Das Zimmer hatte eine angenehme Größe. Leider lagen sehr viele Gegenstände unter dem Bett
