Stayed at the pension in a private room. Comfortable and pleasant, wasn't really looking for atmosphere so that's fine. Check in was a bit of a nightmare. We arrived exhausted only to find no one on reception and we had to all but alas, travelling, no one had functioning phones on them as we didn't have SIM cards. A problem to consider.


Everything is fine. Just the power water during your shower is a problem.


It's a cutest little place right in the centre of everything. Very comfortable, couldn't have asked for a better place.


Feel like staying at house, nice kitchen with fully equipped kitchen utensils and nice balcony. Nice staff and the location was in the town center. Shower facilities should be improve and overall I enjoy staying here!


Room was nice and cosy, didn't know how to use the safes so couldn't lock my stuff, showers were pretty average and only 2 for everyone, was a bit bad in the morning rush. Overall was a fine place to stay and very affordable!


The staff was very friendly. The hostel is cute and in a good location. It also wasn't a noisy party hostel, which I prefer.


Great place! Loved the location.

Great location, friendly staff, full kitchens and beautiful balcony. The only thing is the shower situation: be ready to push a button every 10 seconds to keep the water running, but beside that amazing town!


The hostel is amazing! We arrived late from prague at 11.55pm but the driver picked us up from the train station even though we alighted at the wrong bus station. Staff were all friendly and helpful too
