6.6.Good.
  • Good location. Clean. A bit noisy but that’s mostly the other guests being inconsiderate.

    Ok. Inga skåp. Trångt.

    Bra gemensamma lokaler. Fin innegård. Tyvärr var det flera duschar stänga och några saker var sönder.

    Rapport Qualité-Prix correct mais peut mieux faire

    Hôtel assez éloigné de tout... Il faut marcher un peu avant de trouver des restaurants, des magasins et marcher beaucoup pour les arrêts de bus concernant les voyageurs... Pas d'intimité dans les dortoirs entre les clients et en dehors vu qu'il n'y a pas de rideaux... Il fait très chaud dans les chambres, pas de prise de courant personnel... Personnel accueillant et souriant!
