    In de lij, de nor, debajes 😀

    Leuk!!! Netjes en schoon, ruim ook (we hadden een eigen 2-persoons kamer, sorry; cel). Vriendelijke mensen. En natuurlijk een heel bijzondere, grappige plek!

    Das Hostel hatte schöne, gemütliche Zimmer mit Gefängnisflair. Die Gemeinschaftsbaderäume waren sehr sauber. Man erreicht schnell das Zentrum der Stadt Leeuwarden. Kann ich nur wärmstens weiter empfehlen!

    De hostel is vrij sober maar echt een aanrader. Zeer speciale ervaring om in een cel te overnachten. De verbouwing is zeer goed gedaan. Al zou je het niet denken toch een hele fijne atmosfeer.

    Locatie en entourage is heel bijzonder (spannend). Ontbijt is eenvoudig maar van alles is er ruim voldoende. In ieder geval waar voor je geld.

    Das ist ein Erlebnis in einem ehemaligen Gefängnis zu schlafen. Die Zellen sind sauber und ordentlich

    Una experiencia bastante positiva para mi sorpresa. Supongo que una cárcel impone un poco,pero es tan acogedor que dan ganas de no salir.

    Belle expérience. Chambre avec salle d'eau privée spacieuse. Bonne literie. Très jolie réhabilitation des lieux. D'autres villes devraient s'en inspirer. Personnel très agréable, souriant et à notre écoute. Possibilité de petit déjeuner sur place. Je conseille vivement cet endroit. Le seul petit point négatif (s'il faut en trouver un) : aucun parking gratuit et les parkings sont payants de 8h à 22h.

    Es gibt eine Küche, die man nutzen kann incl. Kühlschrank, Herd, Geschirr. Fand ich persönlich sehr praktisch, da eine Städtereise mit mehreren Personen ganz schön teuer wird, wenn man immer essen geht. Alles war sehr sauber, nicht hellhörig, ein bisschen warm in den Zimmern mit wenig Möglichkeit zum runterkühlen, da man das Fenster nur einen Spalt öffnen konnte....halt „Knastfeeling“ schätze ich mal....aber würde die Unterkunft jederzeit wieder buchen

    Dramatisch

    De kamer is heel klein waardoor je bijna op elkaar ligt, het ziet er oud en donker uit. Geen service, je moet alles zelf doen en ze proppen kamers vol met mensen, terwijl andere kamers gewoon leeg zijn! Douches zijn op zich prima.
