  • I looked at majority of the reviews of this place and the reviews seemed great especially when it related to cleanliness and solo traveling. Maybe I’m not a hostel stay kind of…

8.0.Very Good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Prima plek voro een redelijke prijs.

    Prima plek op een heel fijne locatie, op loopafstand van het centrum.Het is basic, maar alles wat je nodig hebt is er. En de prijs is heel redelijk voor wat ze bieden. Er is een keuken in de tuin, waar je heerlijk kunt zitten en er is een terras aan de voorkant bij het restaurant, dat 's morgens heerlijk ontbijt serveert (inclusief!). Het is wel gehorig. Dus je moet hopen dat je medegasten zich gedragen.
