It was a small, laid back kind of hostel. The staff and volunteers were very friendly and willing to help. It smelled smokey throughout the hostel because of the woodstove downstairs but that's a comforting smell (and a great place to dry wet shoes). There was free breakfast and other free food throughout the day. I told them I get cold easily and they brought an extra blanket up to my room. Very friendly place!


Cozy and great atmosphere, friendly people. Rooms don't lock; have to ask for a locker key; breakfast is good but meager; wood stove is nice, but everything is sooty--feet black shortly after showering. Almost never toilet paper, but there are faucet-based bidet things. Staff is nice, usually helpful, generally speak English, but the guy who checked me in barely did. He got back to playing WoW as soon as possible. Didn't tell me about breakfast, rooms, lockers. Grungy but reasonable.


Had a great stay! Wonderful, helpful staff that were very flexible about my stay. The common areas were great.

Very friendly. However, slightly noisy due to proximity of the street. I would warmly recommend the place.

Take my advice: if you aren't a backpacker, don't stay here. Good value and staff however!


The staff was very helpful, although they didn't speak much english. I stayed on a saturday night, and it was a bit noisy, since they were partying downstairs (but hey... everybody needs to let the steam out! ^_^) . Breakfast was good. On the other hand, it wasn't very clean... Considering it was what it proposed to be ( a backpackers hostel) it was spot on! I'd come back for very short stays. Thumbs up for the staff!


Good hostel. A lot of volunteers though in the hostel. It was run by 7!!! volunteers while I was there. Number of guests was probably less. They mean well and make a unforgettable theme night each week. While I was there it was Indian night.
