Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Close to the airport.


We stayed there for 5 nights. The owner is very helpful and funny. We really enjoyed the quite and beautiful garden. The brekfast was good. And the rooms were big enough.

It was cheap. That is about all I can say. There seemed to be only 1 shower and while I was there at a really quiet time, there was still a queue for it. It was all clean enough however it was old and in need of a substantial touch up. One of the staff had a lovely hacking cough that you could hear from upstairs and breakfast was simple with a quite uninviting kitchen area. If you want cheap it's fine, but don't expect much else. The guy on the front desk in the day was really helpful though.


That hostel was really nice! I only stayed for one night after the airport but everything was fine! The guy at the desk was very helpful for finding all the buse custumers needed :)


Only stayed one night, was just a bed before and early flight the next day. Close the the airport and good security.
