Nice hostel
We had an en-suite private room in this hostel, including towels and bed linen. We checked in on our own, as we came later during the evening, and that went fine. The room had enough space for our two suit cases. Next to the hostel there was a fenced-in car park, which is closed during the night. The kitchen had everything we needed. I could really recommend this place!
