orientalisches Schmuckstück
Wunderschönes Hostel in einem Herrenhaus der Stadt. Hervorragender, sehr hilfsbereiter Herbergswirt. Im Hochsommer aber unbedingt 4-Bett-, nicht 2-Bettzimmer buchen, da letztere fensterlos und stickig sind.

4/10 Fair

Pas pour un couple !
Problème de réservation entre le site et l'hôtel, ce qui nous vaut une nuit en dortoir. Puis 3 nuit dans une "chambre double", qui est en fait un dortoir (avec des lits jumeaux donc) séparé par des paravents.
