Jacob VAN DEN BERG thinks…

"Perfect for backpackers, meeting other travellersis easy, with activities like pubcrawl and comunal dinner. In a quiet side street near bars restaurants and student facilities. Good public transport."

12 August 2011 Bjorn would recommend this property

Liked: Where to start? Free, huge fried breakfast is a good point. Also on the night I arrived the owner decided to make a free dinner for everyone as well (though this apparently isn't a regular thing). Also a couple of free glasses of whisky was a nice touch! Excellent advice on what to see/do as well from the owner.

Disliked: As there were renovations only a handful of showers were in use, but I managed to use one whenever I wanted. Also my bed broke on the second morning - the old, bent slats gave way and my mattress fell through.
