Liked: • The french guy who works there. He was very nice• The beds were good• Free phone• Big TV• Spa

Disliked: • Unsafe (no keys, the doors are always open)• No Sky-TV (The description offer you Sky-TV)• 9 Bed Dorm insted of 8• Walls are really thin and parts of the wall are open (feels like a 18 Bed Dorm)• The doors to the dorms are in the kitchen (really noisy)• The toilets and showers are in a different building• The small toilet in our building never had any toiletpaper during my stay• Very unfriendly ownerThe owner forced me to take other shoes to do the Alpine Crossing or he wouldn't drive me with the shuttle bus I've allready payed for. He gave me some other shoes and afterwards with many blisters and bleeding feets he told me I've to pay for these shoes. I asked him for some bandages, but he said he doesn't have any.In my eyes is it just a rude way to make more money!Please do NOT go to this Hostel!!!

Liked: Great, we arrived after hours and the key and rooms were easily located. Had a car so getting around was not a problem, WiFi available. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, small but clean bathroom

Disliked: WiFi expensive for the amount, drier was ineffective - we had to dry our clothes twice to dry them, even with a small load.
