    Very Good

    Everything was okay, really nice breakfast provided, huge and beautiful socializing area, friendly and helpful staff. Was in a 14 beds mixed dorm which was surprisingly really quiet, but noise coming from socializing areas was pretty disturbing (I think a window in my room was directly connected to the big kitchen/living room area, which theoretically people are not supposed to use after a certain time at night). Lockers are provided but you need your own padlock. Pretty friendly atmosphere.

    Good

    I had a big bag that really should have been in a locker, along w my small backpack with my computer in it. The locker was way too small to have put my bigger backpack in it, and I was traveling with a friend who didn't even get his own locker... So, security was not at all superb. The 14 person room I was in was very tight fitting, and DIRTY. It really felt as though every person you were with had been there for longer than a month, and no one had cleaned anything. The location was great though
