The location is great. Close to everyting, but the street itself is not that noisy (except when they clean the streets, but that doesn't take too long. The staff is wonderfull and very relaxed. They have no strict reception times, which is a blessing! You can check-in early or late, it doesn't matter. They have free pancakes (not the best, but it will do when you're hungry) on Saturday around 11AM. If there are many people, wait 20-25 minutes and the line will be gone haha. The free barbecue on Sunday at 5 PM is really good! They play movies on Wednesday and Sunday and they fixed the soundsystem, that's nice. They could play a movie every night. Free wifi, but there are a lot of people using it, so your I-phone might not work. Free internet, but is it very slow. They really should replace the computers, that would help a lot. The rooms are allright, but there are no seperate toilets. Everything is ensuite, which is not handy when you are with 6 girls in a dorm. You can use the bar, but it is not always open (ask for the key at the reception, if you really need to go). I would love it, if they also offered a 4-girl dorm. The rooms are a bit small for 6 girls. Maybe they can take the kitchen out of the room and just leave the fridge. You can smoke on the balcony (each room has one, which is great) and near the nice swimming pool.
