Al principio tenía miedo el hacer una cosa así. Dejar mis pertenencias a un lugar desconocido. Solicité guardar una maleta pequeña y al final tuve que guardar una pequeña bolsa más, y para mí sorpresa no me cobraron nada a mayores. Todo un detallazo. La persona muy atenta y siempática. No ha habido ningún problema. Segurísimo que repito. Y lo recomiendo.
