Academica Summer Hostel

Really friendly staff-- really convenient location. I was in a 3 person room-- in the old section and we had a kitchen with a fridge-- there is a communal kitchen where you can borrow cooking equipment from. wireless internet in the room for a price (or you can try and steal).

Guest Reviews

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Terrible! Bed is broken, windows not to open because the curtain hangs to down, Ineternet 2€ per hour (!), guestkitchen very dirty all time, kitchen in room with dirty glasses, plates, spoons and knifes. No pot or jug in the roomkitchen. The swimmingpool is 1,5 h for woman and 1,5 h for man open, not possible to go to swim as a couple.
Long time to wait on the key when a group checked in (in the two days we stayed there altimes a group checked in!!!) the way to the swimmingpool not to find (three times asked the personal, no hints where it is)
Friendly personal.
