Safe place, someone has to unlock the front door to get in the hostel. Near of shops, restaurants, etc. The staff was not helpful most of the time, biggest negative point. It was clean all the time. Nice hostel for a big hostel.


I loved this place. One of the best hosteIs I ever stayed. The staff was super friendly and helpful. the room , the garden und the bar were really beautiful and everything was super clean. I liked the atmosphere and met lots of nice people. Really enjoyed my stay there.

The female dorm offered was not that great, apparently it was not prepared and finished for the season, so it had no lockers, no MIRROR and the shower floor was unfinished. It didnt feel that safe, although the people sleeping at the dorm were ok. No breakfast included, which was disappointed for the rate paid ($14 for a female 8-beds dorm) at the beginning of November, when it's not yet high season and every day was pouring raining. I had to change to a double bed private room for $30. Staff ok
