    Insider tips about what future students should not miss: You cannot rely on the kitchen
    Other comments: the kitchenette in the apartments is really bad: absolutely small and inadequate facilities. There was just one pan, without the cover. The microwave would have been very useful, but notwithstanding the fact that I have complained for two weeks in a row with the reception I got nothing, not even one of the things (in my opinion) fundamental such as a lid, a sharp knife, a saucepan, a colander , a can opener or a bottle opener. I heard from other guests that it's like that in all the apartments.
