Top-Lage!! Die Gestaltung des Vorplatzes mit einem bunten Blumenarragement zeigt die Liebe, die die Mitarbeiter in dieses Kleinod investieren. Die Mitarbeiter waren sehr hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Auch die HIlfe bei der Suche nach einer Übernachtungsmöglichkeit in der Nähe, bed and Breakfast, als das Hostel ausgebucht war, war mehr als angehnem und hilfreich.
