I was only here for the night, but they waited for me to arrive and got me all checked in and checked out very easily. The bed was really comfortable for a hostel especially. The kitchen was nice and open and was kept clean even that late in the day. It seems like a good location, and close to the city center.


Only stayed one night, but had a good time!


Very friendly staff and therefore a good atmosphere! They help you with your activities and organise everything you need for it. The rooms are neat and clean. The showers and toilets are alright, but not the best.
