It was a place to sleep...and that's just what I did there. Stayed in the 4 bed female dorm, wished there was a tad bit more heat in the room. It was so cold...
The showers were so nice and warm. They were also kept pretty clean considering how many people used them.
Only thing is that the door across from our room slams so loudly that it kept on waking everybody up. Also wish that the 10pm (or was it 11pm?) quiet time was enforced. There were some German students across the hall from our room that were having quite the party with music, yelling, screaming and all until the wee hours of the morning. Streets are also quite noisy at night.
Food is pretty good and the common room is neat. Great place to meet people that's for sure. This place is just great for that if you're traveling on your own.
