"We could take as many towels as we wanted from a cupboard by the reception, at any time. The free coffee was also great, and the breakfast was really good and cost only 4€. The staff was friendly and helpful. I liked…"

19 April 2012 Helena would recommend this property

Liked: Really please with location (less than 5 minute walk from Subway). Brilliant for tourist attractions, river spree, eateries etc. Well run, organised, even extension leads to charge phone/laptop (bring your adaptor!). Good breakfast which included cheese and 1 type of cold cut. Decent sized lockers in rooms to accommodate mid size suitcase/rucksack. Stayed in a 4 bed female dorm; individual reading light attached to the head of the bed so no need for bunker lighting if somebody needed to get to sleep earlier. Read by review on Trip Adviser.

Disliked: Nothing. Could be potentially noisy with slamming doors, large groups etc but my experience was of a good sleep ... but then I was very tired.
