The common areas are very good to contact neighbours "spontaneously". That's good, because it creates community. I love the people I live with.
The best thing is the nature, the forest nearby, excellent staff and cleaning, nice neighbours, the zent price!!!
I thank the staff for their problem solving spirit.
Retrodorm is situated not far from the city centre, and in a very lovely place (I love the woods!)
The staff is very nice and always ready to answer our questions and to help us.
One of the best things is the fact that it's clean, good staff, and excellent conditions. For that, big thank you.
Nice and clean place.
We have a lot of possibilities to communicate, due to the group room and shared kitchen.
The best thing is that is a place near the city center and the Citymarket. And I like the trees around my room. There is a lot of space and people are very friendly.
When we have a problem, we have help.
The best thing about the Retrodorm is being together and having a good time with all people from all around the world.
I enjoy every day here.
