The hostel is ok, but very small, it's a flat transformed in an hostel with a very small kitchen/living room/corridor/entrance/reception all together. A bit strange. But a nice breakfast.


very good!Clean kitchen! Breakfast is nice with fresh friut and toast. Location is good. The hostel is not far away from the Central market so that we can buy food for our dinner.


This is our 2nd time staying here. The first time we stayed in the 6 bed dorm, which was fine. This time we had a private room. The private was great. Once again we experienced helpful, nice staff, simple but good free breakfast, convenient location in a normal area (not old town), nice common rooms, free wifi and it was clean.


We can totally recommend this hostel. Nice staff, nice atmosphere für old and young and a very good value for money!

Lovely cozy feel but also a nice variety of common spaces and nooks to just sit and read if you prefer. Seemed perfect for families or those seeking a quieter space. Don't be off out by the street it's on--once you're inside the place is very safe, clean, and comfy. I would definitely stay here again! The breakfast spread was very generous, a nice added bonus :) oh, and the showers were really clean.


One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Completely clean. Really nice decor and furnishings make it feel like a cosy apartment. There are two really nice lounges, a good kitchen, plus even sofas in some dorms, so there's loads of space to chill. Great social atmosphere. Good location on a quiet street, a short walk from the Old Town and the train/bus stations. Free wifi and 2 computers. Very generous breakfast included. And with costs getting as low as €7 per night, it's amazing value!


Quiet, dingy hostel... Found it very boring nad charmless


Not in the old town, but I preferred the location. 10 minutes walk to bus station, train station, old town, supermarket, Central Market, waterfront...everything. Small market right next door too. Free breakfast simple but good. Nice and helpful staff. 2 common rooms to relax. I would stay here again.


Really a great place to stay: perfect situated, very clean and neat with helpful staff and delicious breakfast. You can’t find anywhere better, I bet. If you ever happen to stay in the town, don’t hesitate to choose them. Cheers !!
