Towel, sheets and blanket provided for free. Everything was very clean. The hostel is very close to the old town, around 5-10 minutes by walking. Atmosphere wasn't bad, just too quiet. I had the feeling I was alone in the place :P But maybe I was just there at the bad time (may) ? Because for sure, the place is very nice with a big terrace, comfortable armchairs under umbrellas and even some hammock ;)


Great pleace to be! Nice and kind stuff, amazing atmosphere and superb concept for forest "surroundings".


Booked a double room with an own kitchen. Room looked bigger in the pictures and the kitchen wasn't even close to a kitchen. We had only had a fridge, waterheater and 5 glasses. No knives, plates, forks or something like that. You can hardly call that a kitchen. The heating was good en nice. The showercurtain was almost falling of the wall; and the lights in the room were not working properly. Our towels weren't changed during the 5 days we were there. Not worth of your money.


In general it's a nice place to stay with a lovely and cosy atmosphere. The double room ensuite was great. Although I've to say, they have an issue with showers and heating system: in the middle of the winter with -12° outside you can't just have COLD WATER and heating turned low in the rooms. Either do something with it or stop saving on it.

It was 7 am when I got the hostel .By the time I got to the hostel I was freezing.I could not feel my fingers.I knew that check in time is 15:00 but I needed to sleep as I could not sleep whole night in the bus.The receptionists girl was very polite and friendly.She took me to the basement where allowed me to sleep on sofa.The lady brought clean sheet and pillow-case.She brought me hot tea.After sleeping 3 hours and warming myself I went outside.


The location wasn't good at all and the staff was a little bit rude. I think that with this price you can find something with breakfeast included


The Reception is only to 22:00 Open you have Send them Message in Advance or the Door is Close and the Phone nobody Answer, the Staff Lady on the Next Morning Cash the Money ,she d ont give me other Infos ,there is only 1 Toilet for the Etage Open


Very nice hostel. We had a great double private room. It was clean, warm, and the staff was very friendly.


Дуже хороший хостел, приємний персонал. Всім рекомендую!)


Check in after 3 PM Check out before 11 AM That was tough to follow. Kitchen is provided. But we need to have our own Sugar, Oil, Salt, Pepper ( which I believe is the basic in cooking / boiling tea and coffee ) Drinking in room was not acceptable, but we had three empty bottles.

1.very cold hostel, I become sick after visiting 2. We have booked kruassans on the breakfast, but in the morning someone has eated it, we were hungry and angry


We had a really nice stay !


Wonderful, clean and bright hostel! It is a little far away from the center down a lonely road, but it was very quiet and clean. The staff is great, and there is free coffee in the morning I highly recommend!


Very good stay, the hostel is so well decorated and there's a very good atmosphere! The price is very good for the service. I'll recommend it ! Just, there wasn't liquid soap everywhere needed (empty) and the fact that we can't drop paper in the toilets decrease the hygienic point even if everything was very clean, happy there was towels. Croissants and chocolate's were so good, as the tea and cofee. Very nice concept for self service system. So, glad I stayed there !

This was one of my favourite hostels, and I have stayed in a few! It was really lovely, hidden away in a little bunch of trees, wood fires, lovely decking. Beds were really comfortable, big spacious rooms. Showers were a bit scarce for the amount of guests, and really small but hot! Staff were friendly. A bit of a walk to the city centre. But very do-able! Croissants were lovely!


Perfect as always! But please fix the toilets/shower at the ground floor :)


A quite location (as I wanted), a very chill atmosphere, extremely clean: a truly sweet place! Haha, it would be cool if they could have at least one computer available for guests, but otherwise it was all really good.


What the hostel info says here is sometimes not true, but it's okay. It's a pity, though, that breakfast consists only of tea or coffee. Everything else was really cool.


Very nice hostel with reasonable price. Clean, Walk from coach station around 30 minutes. To the Old town is around 10 to 15 minutes on foot.
