I suggest to provide a bedside basket with a rim for top bunks. I put a few things on top of the lamp, but wiped them down with my blanket during the night. They slid beside the bed, partly beneath it, partly on the lower bunk, where there was a lady asleep. Apart from this experience, I enjoyed my stay with YHA very much, as always. I'm especially happy about the cleanliness and the very friendly & helpful staff. Thank you!

Emplacement magnifique, dommage que ce soit très compliqué avec le parking, car pas assez de places. Les deux personnes présentes n'étaient pas très qualifiées pour l'enregistrement et pas très sympas. Elles ne connaissaient rien de la région et ne pouvaient pas nous renseigner sur les activités à faire. Je trouve aussi dommage que l'on avertisse pas les clients que la réception ferme à 21h00!!!
