Great location - in between the bus station and the main square. Pretty great views, I would recommend asking for the top floor if you can. Breakfast was delicious!!

The hostel it self was excellent for what I've paid and the staff was just great, unfortunately I've got in to a stupid argument with the owner who was very unfriendly, luckily for me I rarely saw them and the rest of the staff was just great!

Owner Comment (Hide)
The stupid argument was about the price, it is mentioned 3 times in hostelworld website that 12% tax is not included, however you insisted on not paying this 12% tax, he was saying that we are stealing his money, and that obviously was not the case.


Hostel was ok, walking distance to everything. The best part of my stay was the breakfast.


Good location, nice breakfast, clean and WIFI works very good!


should have been perfect, but just got a weird vibe from staff and common area. excellent views.


For a double room great value ... Breakfast is amazing .... Wifi really good.... Great location ... Great hot water shower


Really value for money. Private double with bathroom for only 18 dollars including good breakfast. Place is clean, beds are comfi and the wifi is good. Staff is friendly and the hostel is basically in center of town. Hardly recommended


Excellent breakfast options, hot water, lots of common space. The man working the desk in the evening was nice and helpful, but the lady in the morning was super grumpy and pretty rude. Maybe she was just having a bad day!


The room smelt of damp and mould and was dirty. The bathroom hadn't been cleaned in days and the blanket on the bed was filthy.


We liked this hostel. Same price to stay in a double as it is to stay in a dorm - note for couples! We booked dorm but they let us switch straight away. Kitchen is great, fully stocked and equipped but can only use it during certain times which is the one slight annoyance, but we worked around this. Banos is great and would highly recommend staying here when you visit. Oh and the free breakfast is awesome!!!


Very good free breakfast!
