We like the conception of the hotel, as it is also a school for young people who like or intend to study space engineering. They do a beautiful job in promoting education for science! It is located near the old center.

I booked a room when the whole city was booked because of an event. It was expensive (100€ a night). When I arrived, I found the room was furnished like a bad youth hostel, on the fourth floor, with no elevator, and shared bathrooms. Not what I expected given the description (and the price). I complained to the staff that the description on booking.com was inaccurate (the first bullet point on the description was "Bath", but there was only a sink in the room). The guy on the desk listened at first, even checked if there are rooms available that have a bathroom, but when his boss joined the conversation, he immediately started to loudly berate me, insult me, and literally scream at me (including my favourite line of the whole rant, "this is not a hotel"). I just stood there shocked. All I managed to say was that the description didn't match the room, and he should check it. Although it took a couple of minutes to get all of that across. I'm pretty polite really, but this man didn't like to be told anything by anyone. I was told if I didn't like it, I should leave, and good luck finding a room when everything is booked. I did, and I found a room in a big chain-hotel right in the city center for only 70€, which was, of course, perfect. As I was booking my new room outside, I could see him going back to his pupils. It was the worst experience I have ever had to endure in a hotel (or not a hotel). But after reading the other reviews on here, I think everything worked out great for me. 😣

Traumatic is - when you book quick and cheap without reading the description. This is a school from 08:00 to 16:00h. After that time other guests are also welcome if space is aviable. 10.000 guests per year like this.

This place is a complete s--thole. Do not stay here unless you have not other options. There was only warm water in the room, no hot water. In the shower, the water temperature was almost impossible to control, the holder for the shower handle was very loose and did not hold up the handle, and the drain was clogged. There was no place to dress or undress in the bathroom, and therefore no privacy. I accidentally walked in on a fat old lady who was totally naked. In our room, which had prison-style bare-metal bunk-beds, only 2 of the 4 bed lights worked. One was burned out. The other was missing, which actually could be hazardous if a child sticks their finger in it and turns it on. The photographs online completely misrepresent the quality of your place. We were completely disappointed and feel ripped off. We were charged a €5 fee because we arrived after 9pm. Why? We have no idea. There wasn't even anyone there to great us. They put our key in a wall safe and we had to trudge around tot the back. They explained, "It is because we are a school." Huh?! We should not have had to pay more than €8-10 per person to stay in such a terrible place. €59 per night -- without breakfast -- is a joke.

A terrible guest - nothing of that what he wrote is real. His wife and kids did not agree whet he said very indiscret in the lobby - infront of all breakfast guests. He got more as he booked (4 bed room for his 4 family members instead of a booked 3-bed room). Beds are from IKEA and shown so in the reservation fotos. Lights are by solar - 12 V. There is no danger. This is a shool with an economy accomodation and 7 shared barthrooms - if aviable. All is new renovated. Every guest is kind and knows what he booked and for what he donate his fee.. Except this guest did not read any description and did not pay his receipt. Thats why we have to set him onto our BLACKLIST.

Good place to stay. The rooms are nice and clean. The employes are friendly. Bathroom you share with others. You can also park your car in the backyard of the hotel if you want, you pay only 5 euro per day and you car is then safe because the backyard is under key.

Our room in 2nd floor was oriented to the backyard and calm and clean. Bathroom in the floor to share with others. No elevator - we don't need one. An early breakfast we got at a market nearby. Friendly staff.
