Liked: Friendly staff, convenient to mass transit.

Disliked: Despite my paying extra for a "4 Bed Mixed Dorm Ensuite" was put in a 6 bed dorm. Normally wouldn't be an issue, but since it is 1 shower/bathroom per room, having to fight two extra people for the shower in the morning makes a big difference. Expensive for what you're getting, but that's normal for a venue around the time of GamesCom...

Liked: The staff were extremely polite and helpful. There was always someone on the desk to help. There was a nice social area to sit in the evenings and everywhere was very clean. It is located very close to the area around the university where there are lots of bars and is very busy in the evenings.

Disliked: The bar area is quite small and never had anyone operating it, however you could buy beer from the front desk.
