First the good things: a) room is clean, b) bed is comfortable, c) WiFi access in the room and a desk and plug handy, d) friendly front desk, g) good map locating train station and central plaza.
Negatives: a) No showers on every floor. My room was on the 1st; I had to go to the second for a shower, and there were only two shower stalls for both floors total.
b) breakfast costs 6.50 Euros extra. Often breakfasts are included in hostel prices. I paid 35 Euro - cash only - for the room.
c) Not even a sink in the room.
d) pillow and duvet are stored in the lobby. Guests have to carry them up to their rooms as well as carrying sheets. Makes two trips necessary, once for luggage, a second for two-handsful of sheets, duvet, and pillow.
e) No towel supplied
f) Door key is an old fashioned straight round shaft with a "flag" hanging down at the end. I had great difficulty twice getting the door open, once very early in the morning when it made a lot of noise, probably disturbing other people still asleep.
g) huge negative contrast with hostel in Schleswig about which I have only positive things to say. [Jugendherberge Schleswig, Spielkoppel 1, 24837 Schleswig, Tel: 04621 23893]
