Liked: Very clean, very spacious, bright.. free internet access, free pasta, free sauna. What I love the most is that they have a kitchen with shelves of leftover groceries for reuse - I am a big fan of this concept. More importantly, their staff are very friendly and helpful, especially Lars and Niels!

Disliked: My shampoo got stolen, but that's a minor issue.

Liked: I watched the floors get vacuumed and mopped daily. The showers were always spotless, and the kitchen was kept tidy as well. The free internet is great, although it doesn't reach to all the rooms. They have a nice selection of daily events to meet other guests.

Disliked: There were several families staying with children. I think an age range would be be appropriate.

Liked: It's easy to get to from the main station, the shower is nice, the beds are okay. Everything is average though, I didn't enjoy my stay to be honest.

Disliked: It's extremely over priced and they charge for your bed sheets separately. The showers are nice but there's no privacy in them, there was no way to control the temperature in the room. The lockers are all downstairs so even if your room is on the ground floor you need to carry your suitcase downstairs. The showers are all downstairs so you need to walk around the entire place every time you're going to shower. Check in is at 2pm which is extremely late, and check out is at 10am, that means for every night you pay (which is not at all cheap) you get 20 hours in the room, not even a full day! That's terrible.
