Very good
Well located and easy access by tram. Arrangement of the summary room.

In a room of 6, it lacks a bench or stools, or even a table, as well as shelves, and towel doors in the bathroom. Lack of written information in the dining room for breakfast.

Beautiful design of the lobby and bar. The rest: noisy, unfriendly staff. To flee.

The focus was on the design of the lobby and bar. the wifi is of good quality. Very good. The rest is disappointing: unfriendly staff, loud music constantly in the lobby (to make young and trendy probably), noisy hostel (1 window of the room overlooked a patio occupied by people from the bar until late at night) , no hook in the room (where do we hang his clothes), locker under the bed for his business very difficult to access because the bed was in an angle, etc ... I recommend only for those who want to do the party !

Very good
Very friendly place that offers lots of activities! Nice location although the building is very modern.

Disappointed by the showers ... No bath mat and full of hair on the floor ... We must make the bed, it surprised me but it is not a problem.
