  • It would be better if you could inform guests in advance that they need to bring their own padlock for locker.

  • Everything was really fine, except for the early kitchen lock (10 pm) and way too early check-out (10:00 am). Imagine being at a party last night and hurrying up in the morning to check out :)

  • Good location, rooms somewhat above average (lockers + own lamp/USB charger and socket per bed). Many showers, pretty small though. Didn't see much going on in the pub downstairs but probably that was due to vacations.
