WARNING I don’t have TV’s, minibars nor WiFi in the rooms, don’t worry there’s free WiFi in the living room for you internet addicts; I do have a good night’s sleep, board games and conversations. I have a garage where you can stow your bikes. I also have a guest pantry with all you might need like a microwave, fridge, hairdryer, iron and a water boiler to make your own coffee / tea if you like.
23 years my 4 old buildings had been empty. I gave them tender love and care and now I am ready to share it all with you. When you walk in you enter in my living room, the place to check in, enjoy a local drink or snack, play a game and interact with others.

WARNING: QUIET TIME
My guests come here to sleep on my comfi matrasses. Please feel free to sleep all you want and respect others that wish to do so. What does that mean? Between 22:00 and 8:00 is quiet time. Not feeling tired - go check out the local nightlife in town. I will ask you to lower your voice once you cross the bridge on your way back. I'm located in the quiet part of town. Believe me when I say that my neighbours and guests love their sleep.
WARNING: If I receive complaints from other guests; I will charge you for the financial damage as a consequence of your behavior. If I receive complaints from the neighbours; I will ask you to personally apologize to them and send them flowers with a note. If you want I will send them for you and charge you the bill. If you do not respect my rules. I can ask you to leave without refund.

Life is a natural high, no need for drugs. Usage and/or selling of drugs is prohibited on the premises and 50 meters around the building. I will ask you to leave without refund if you do so.
GROUPS IN DORMS
I love having fun groups stay with me in the dorms. For sure you can imagine the noise it can bring. Please do have fun, just so you know that my neighbours love fun too, just not during quiet time. So keep your room door and windows closed if they lead to public outside areas, your voices reach further then you might expect.
I have a great patio where you can relax, light the fireplace and enjoy a local treat.
At 23.00 I go into quiet mode as my neighbours and I love a good night sleep
I play great local music. If you want to play your own music please do so with headphones or in your room.
Please feel free to use the fireplace. I will provide wood that is enough for one evening.
