Liked: We 3 girls stayed 1 night in a female only 6-bed dorm, it was clean and the other girls were nice. The room was big enough. The hoste is easily accessible from the city center (15min straight forward walking). Breakfast is expensive (4.5€). Staff nice (we only saw the receptionnist). Otherwise really worth its price!
