First of all, we are a couple in their 30's, our holiday preferences are: travelling by car, getting a good proportion of nature (hiking, bathing) and culture (museums, theatre). Looking for a double room for max. 80-90 € per night, no luxury, but clean + basic comfort.
If you are alike, this is definitely NOT a place for you.
Upon our arrival we learnt that despite a confirmed booking, the staff - although friendly - could not find out if they had a double room available at all! They offered a twin room instead, available immediately - two old, uncomfortable looking beds and an old stinking little fridge used as a bedside table. Very different from the photos on their website! We finally got a slightly better double, after blocking the reception for ca 1h - still, very uncomfortable bed.
Music at the bar downstairs is very loud till late hours (after midnight), there is a 'silence after 22h' policy in the building, but does not apply to the bar and yard apparently...
Reception staff seems very disorganized, we witnessed how they could not find other people's laundry etc etc.
If you travel with a car and want to use the hostel's car park, you will need to leave car keys at the reception, in case they need to move the cars around (of course no claims in case they damage your car on this occasion )....
