A classic Lonely Planet favourite, nice hostel with scenic location high on the hillside overlooking the fortress. Very friendly staff, very laid back. Only downside - breakfast doesn't start until 8.30/8.45 and isn't amazing when it does arrive.


Stunning view from the hostel! And the staff is really nice.


Great, welcoming, atmosphere; would definitely stay there again!

I cannot speak highly enough of this hostel in VT. The staff were helpful and friendly and keen to point out the best hiking trails and attractions around the city. The location is also perfect - about 5 minutes out of the centre of town, it's quiet and relaxing with the most stunning view over the fortress. 10/10 would stay again!

I just stay one night,when I take shower on way,the water was stop,they couldn't fix until morning,I was with soap go to bed⋯


Really lovely women working there. very helpful re: hikes you can take & good places to eat. There’s a bit of a scam with local taxi drivers refusing to take you up the hill (the hostel is a bit up the hill in the old town) or doubling the fare to do it. Just be persistant or walk away.


great hostel with great staff and views!
