The flat is only in summer used as a hostel. The other time of the year Erasmus students are living there. I spent four month there. During the first month we found some mice in our department. The flat has seven bedrooms and is full of cupboards. The flatowner gave us only 2 (!!!!!!) traps....so we had to buy some... More
