Explored the amazing town, got good advice from everyone working the front, they enjoyed helping. Was glad they shared where to rent the bikes, would definitely return


Great hostel! Supr clean. I loved the details, like a hair dryer hanging there to be used, access to drinks by puting a euro in a jar. Very kind staff! The only thing I missed and would've loved is organised dinners to share with other travellers. I was given good advice of where to go and what to do.


I really enjoyed staying there, it's very clean and well designed, the free breakfast is good enough, and the stuff are very friendly and willing to help with everything. It's a 20 something walk from the beach and the center and located in a quiet neighborhood. but one thing was awful- don't stay at the last floor- the room is completely open, there is no door and it gets so loud in the mornings- you can hear every little step.. Other than that- an amazing cool little hostel.


nice, clean hostel :) the breakfast is pretty good. 10-15 minutes walk to the beach.


Nice hostel, I love the big kitchens and good breakfast. When you get to the train station, stop at the Jumbo grocery store before you come to the hostel. Bring your earplugs because you might end up in the room that is a loft so it has no door.


I had a good stay at the Ljmonade. The hostel is made up of 3 separate houses very clean, quite and nice decor. The staff were very friendly and nice and they are welling to give you suggestions on restaurants, thing to do and transports. The only two downsides that I found: not enough showers and the female dorm had no door which made it very noisy as you can hear every step in the house.


I spent only one night! Very clean! Kind staff! Nice breakfast!


What a charming, lovely, hospitable, social and homely place. Definitely recommend it to anyone, especially solo travellers. Having dorm rooms without bunk beds was also a nice touch.


Great hostel, set back a bit from the main tourist area but by no means a far walk, and it also means evening are quiet in the neighborhood for relaxing. Great breakfast and atmosphere. Only downside is there was no door to the loft upstairs where one of the mixed dorms was so it got a little noisy in the morning.


GREAT Hostel! Just one thing, they need to fix the wifi so that it can be stronger in the Rooms.


Lovely room. Very clean and safe. Nice breakfast offered in the mornings. Relaxed atmosphere. Helpful and friendly staff.

The Ljmonade is a very cozy friendly hostel, situatated a 10 min walk away from the city centre and the beaches. The staff is excellent and very friendly and helpful. The hostel also offers activities to book for a good price (e.g. stand up paddling, hiking, rock climbing) and the reception is open till 11 p.m. Security is excellent due to a door code.


Our stay was pretty good. Only one thing to point out, the night we were there, there was a party that involved the staff and some residents (i think, not sure) to celebrate something. It happens that there was too much noise at night and me and my girlfriend almost could not sleep or rest, which was pretty bad. I guess this doesn't happen to often tho. Besides that, overall, it was good.


I felt like Home...nice rooms,nice atmosphere, lovely staff.Very helpful. I would defenately like to come again!!
