Stefanie Stierhof

06 October 2007 Stefanie would recommend this property

Liked: friendly staff - there was always someone there to help us or to answer our questions;huge kitchen which could be used by everybody; informal atmosphere - hardly anyone spent his time in his room; everyone was downstairs cooking together, watchen tv together, sitting in the garden and having a glass of wine together ...So it's really been a great time

Annekatrin Endter

10 July 2007 Annekatrin would recommend this property

Liked: Everything. Very nice hostel. Lovely stuff, which you COULD bother all day long. ;) There are (if you are lucky) private bath-rooms in the dorm rooms. Great. Breakfast not included, but quite cheap. Nice guests. Big kitchen. Little "shop" at the reception that has everything, you might have forgotten at home. Walking distance to city-center is circa 10 mins. Yep - just a very nice hostel. :)
