One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Great helpful staff, friendly atmosphere!! Loved it thanks x
Some great things, some less so. - breakfast was a disaster. Finished way too early for wine town! Selection was poor. Lady who works there spends all her time on her phone rather than replenishing food, plates and cutlery. - wifi does not work in the rooms - check out at 10am - washing is done off-site = no flexibility BUT! - met lots of wonderful people. Including staff like max - private room was enormous
We were very impress with Max at the reception. He is very socialble and professional at the same time. A real asset for the hostel.
Reception staff are absolutely excellent, especially Max. Super helpful and friendly! Gave good recommendations and helped book tours in the area. Keep an eye out for the ladies "working" in the morning though. Breakfast service is very poor, as they stand in the kitchen on their phones the whole morning. They get very annoyed when you ask for something as well. This unfortunately takes away from the experience. Daily.
A nice hostel, one of the showers was awesome, the other not so much. Staff were helpful, let us leave our bags there all day and even shower before we could check in. The rooms get hot pretty quickly in the morning so sleep ins are out of the question
Pros: Great location, Very clean, very secure and safe Cons: the staff wasnt the best. There is a girl at the desk that was so unfriendly and I felt uncomfortable every time I needed to ask her a question
Everything is pretty nice at this place - except for all the notes hanging around the entire house telling guests to clean up, stay quiet and so on. it really feels unnecessary as the visitors seem mature and responsible.
Fan was insufficient. Room was very hot at night
Fairly good location opposite Carrefour and near to the main square. Good security. Good facilities. Very relaxed vibe around the hostel. The only downside was one particular young woman working behind reception who was extremely unhelpful, never had a smile on her face and gave the impression she didn't want to be there.
Great place to stay, thank you! Your staff were particularly helpful despite being clearly very busy!!
