6/10 Good

An Ok stay - that is what you paid for a hostel
The available floor space of "bunk unit pod" is smaller than expected, basically only sufficient for you to open up a small luggage. The good side is you have your own private place. There is no active ventilation so not sure how it works in summer time (visited at autumn time which is still comfortable in term or temp). Staffs are friendly and helpful! The closest parking is Q&R parking which cost you euros 14 per day - a tricky parking where you must have credit card to access it and only Dutch language on the machine!

Extremt trevligt boende, stannade här 1 natt då jag reste igenom maastricht, väldigt fräscht men ändå enkelt! Sov i en sovsal och det var helt okej! inte alls så högljutt eller högljutt. Fint hus med innegård och bra wifi. Mycket nöjd med min vistelse.

2/10 Poor

Nesten søvnløs overnatting
Dette er ikke et ordentlig hotell, men en sovesal med «madrassbokser», delte bad og toaletter. Ingen heis, lange ganger og tungvint låsesystem med fare for å låse seg ute. Liten eller ingen komfort. Vanskelig å få sove. Enkel, nesten vegansk og lite smakelig frokost som også var forsinket. Elendig kaffe. Lite høflig og lite forståelsesfull resepsjon. Krevde i utgangspunktet tillegg for både håndklær og MC-parkering, men ga oss likevel det (ikke så rart, når man har betalt 150 Euro for en så dårlig overnatting, kanskje?)
