  Olivier M...

<good spot to meet people. Didnt even need to go out at night because there was plenty going on there.

  Alexander G... 

Nice social area, but our room stank of smoke and had bed bugs. The cooking area (next to the room) closes early so you can sleep, but then the cleaners arrive at 5am and make a racket for no apparent reason. The "famous" pancake breakfast is DIY with no fillings apart from low-cost nasty syrup -best avoided.

Nice location to stay. We had a very nice time drinking beer with total strangers in the central reception area, so it is a nice location to meet people. Free pancakes for breakfast and no cost net (also WiFi) are nice too!

  Lin W... 

I liked the atmosphere and the quick laundry service. The staff was helpful and the pancake breakfast delicious.
