Terrible place to stay. We arrived only to find they had sold our beds and did not honour our booking. They either deliberately ignored our booking or they lost the booking - either way don't risk wasting your money by making a booking or staying here.


Booked 6 bed dorm with bathroom and toilet, seems to be without bathroom and toilet. To little bathrooms for to many beds. Was very noisy during 2 nights in the room.


Thanks Lucy we had a great time!

The lady who runs the hostel is lovely. The location is good as you're very close to the metro and to a big supermarket. The house is nice, with a lovely garden and a nice kitchen. The dormitory is OK, very dark though as there are no windows. It's a nice place during the day, however I couldn't sleep because of the little dog constantly barking at anyone coming in, even late at night, and also because guests are not given any keys - you need to ring the bell, which is super loud. Too noisy.


Incredibly nice staff, always welcome to help and talk.
