8/10 Very good

Ok, cool staff
Everything was good, except the breakfast. They don't have a "free breakfast" properly, they only provide some milk and cereal and you can use them to make your own meal, but it looks like a courtesy, not a breakfast. And the shower it a bit annoying, but it's pretty OK in general.

6/10 Good

Hôtel proche du centre ville. Chambre agréable. Point faible: la salle de bain. Trop petite, sans aération.

10/10 Exceptional

깔끔하고 좋은 호스텔!
전반적으로 아주 좋았어요. 집을 개조한 것 같앗고요 주인아저씨는 친절하시고 아침도 제공하고요, 호스텔도 조용하고 거리도 좋고요 다만 제가 잔 침대가 좀 낡앗어서 삐걱거리는 소리가 좀 심햇습니다
