Unfortunately the staff were terrible. One man in particular was very unprofessional and simply did not want to help anyone. Won't be using them again.

Average facility. As a couple, we would have appreciated knowing there are no co-ed dorms before booking. Very noisy surroundings with lots of families staying here.

The location is not great, but you can walk to the center of town. Esty, who is one of staff, is great and served a great breakfast. Internet is not good and only works in a small outside place.

Trusting the very high rating (~94%), I've stayed at this hostel and was utterly disappointed: Instead of staying in a 4 bed dorm, we were cramped into a tiny room with 7 beds. (Though at maximum 5 people were staying there at once). Atmosphere, service, cleanliness and security are at uppermost average. Furthermore, the staff is very inflexible and more concerned with following their daily routines than helping their guests.
