In the event that you cancel your booking the accommodation provider shall be entitled to retain the total outstanding costs of your booking.

Liked: OK place to stay, not great. The bathrooms are quite far from the rooms, and the showers you push the tap and it goes for 30 seconds then you have to push it again which is a bit annoying.... and it is impossible to not get your hair wet because of the angle of the shower head.The rooms are quite cramped but alright....and the breakfast was not the best just cornflakes and white bread. Better than nothing, but I think there are probably much nicer places to stay. The one thing I really liked was the location!

Customer review

11 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff was VERY helpful! We had a bad smelling room due to a water leek (which wasn't the hostel's fault) and they helped as much as they could!!The beds are quite small (1,80m length) so if you're taller than 1,75m you're gonna have problems sleeping there comfortably. The showers are in the basement, so if you're located on the 3rd floor, you're gonna have to go through the whole hostel to shower. Showers are clean though. So are the rooms and the toilets. The one thing that I found bad is that there is no chance of letting air into the rooms. The windows don't open enough to get fresh air in (or cold air, if it's very warm outside) - which is was! :)
