Good hostel, spacious dorm with A/C, clean bathroom with hot water, good wifi and free coffee. But true, looks and feels more like a hotel. There is a small restaurant with terasse...nice but unreliable morning opening time.


For a family of four people this place is an absolute rip off. $92 for a dorm without A/C and with no towels (ok we got some 20 minutes after we asked, while we were trying to sleep). That's the same price we're paying at Holiday inn ( tax, but with pool, A/C, and 4x Breakfast included). Toilets and shower were not clean. We did not enjoy the stay.
