This was definitely one of the best hostels i ever stayed, the beds were very comfy, the staff was so nice and helpful, all the place is super clean and the included breakfast is a nice plus.

The staff is very nice and helpful about places to see, restaurants to go etc. The atmosphere is quite good, has a common area and a kitchen with coffee machine, micro wave, plates cups and cutlery, free coffee and tea all the time (no cooking stoves unfortunately).Breakfast is included, a decent one. One thing to complain, the common area was packed and closed at 11pm,which is quite early if you want to hang out with your friends. You need to be quite, not possible if you're a group of students

No door locks in the shower place.

A very clean, cute little hostel in a great location. Comfy beds, clean nice showers and incredibly helpful staff. Hostel has more of a family or older feel however, so if you are a backpacker looking for a party and other like minded travellers this may not be the best choice. But for cleanliness, comfort and location: excellent.

Directions to the place could be a little clearer but the people were lovely and very helpful. I thought it was very good value for money.

Average hostel with good facilities, but very far away from the center if you don't have a bike.

I would have liked a gas cooker (to boil potatoes!) or electric rings. I will stay here again!

The staff was really friendly, with the exception of a Frank (I think that was his name). Kind of a an unfriendly person. But other than that, my stay was good. Made a few friends here. Would have been nicer if they had more outlets and an oven for cooking.
