All the staffmembers were friendly. I always had a good chat with Simon and Arya from reception. They are both so funny.... More

Stayed for a while here. It's cozy and you can meet new people easy. The dorm we stayed in didn't have a bathroom so we had to go outside across the yard. It worked fine, but make sure to bring your key so you don't get locked out like I did a few times. The kitchen is a nice area... More
