O quarto era sujo, com pó em todas as prateleiras em cima da cama, nos cacifos o que sujava todas as coisas, o chão visivelmente sujo e os cacifos muito pequenos para guardar as malas. Fizemos as nossas próprias camas e numa delas havia pastilha na estrutura da cama. As mantas que já estavam nas camas, estavam sujas, cheias de cabelos. Reclamamos na receção que nada fizeram senão fornecer outras mantas que se encontravam igualmente sujas e foi necessário pedirmos mantas pela 3a vez

Susana,

Obrigado pela sua revisão. Entendemos que você teve certas preocupações com a higiene enquanto permaneceu conosco. No entanto, o seu quarto tinha sido limpo como de costume, o nosso pessoal foi verificar isto duas vezes. Agradecemos a sua preocupação (, e queremos lembrar-lhe que, como forma de cortesia, foi-lhe oferecida uma bebida gratuita no bar, que escolheu não consumir). Sabemos que os armários da sala estão dimensionados para caber em mochilas de passeio, e não cabem em todas as formas de bagagem. Temos armários maiores no andar de baixo, e uma sala de bagagem para os maiores volumes de bagagem. É realmente costume fazer a sua própria cama no Hostel De Draecke. Isto é por razões higiênicas, e de custo efetivo. Desta forma, podemos continuar a ser o albergue mais económico e amigo do ambiente que somos. Nós lamentamos que você tenha tido uma experiência não tão grande, e gostaríamos de ter você novamente e provar que podemos fazer melhor! Mais uma vez obrigado pela sua revisão. Team De Draecke
