Customer review

28 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Nice atmosphere, nice staff, lots of space to sit outside at night which was great. 24 hour internet access was very convenient (they also offer WiFi for the same rate), and the bar where you could also get pizza to eat was great. Only downside were the opening hours of the receptions, which were not convenient, and the fact that the kitchen was way too small for the amount of people staying in the hostel so it was overcrowded, and it did not have an oven.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Maria Norrback

27 October 2009 Maria would recommend this property

Liked: I thought that the reception and breakfast could have opened a bit earlier. If you have booked a tour and need to check out early it's a bit too stressful. A shame they don't serve breakfast on mondays and tuesdays but I guess they have a reason for that. Nice staff though.

12 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was as it described and my room had it's own bathroom which was convenient. I did find that whilst the staff were generally friendly to the guests they seemed to row with each other and I didn't think that this was appropriate. Some members of staff when checking in guests gave them no assistance in describing the layout of the facilities or explaining anything, for example I did not know I had to hire crockery etc. Kitchen could have been cleaner and better utensils provided.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Courtesy bus ran regularly and on time, and the staff were helpful enough in booking us tickets to the zoo and told us where to get picked up from. Kitchen is massively overcrowded though. beware the K's - you will find out what that means once you get there.

Liked: Swimming pool was nice, although a little small and the rooms were clean. But I was given a bed directly under the Air Con which did not make for a good nights sleep!

28 December 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was next to the river which was beautiful and peaceful. The only thing to be aware of is the fact that there a lot of germans so if your not a german travelling alone, you are most likely going to be isolated.
