Great location and that's about it. Staff was friendly but never present. Even though we provided our eta to the hostel in advance, there was no one there to let us in. Thankfully a stranger let us borrow his phone so we were able to contact staff and let ourselves in. No hot water. No a/c remote.

Every room have separately 50 liter hot water. When you spend it, you need to refill ca.20 min. Rooms on discount do not have AC, there is supplement 5eur. On your arriwal time we are in house


These are facts, not thoughts : Make sure you contact the guesthouse before arrival or you won't get in. The place is unstaffed and we were only able to check in because a lady on the street called for us. There is no name on the door, just paper telling you to be quiet. The guy checking us in is nice but that's the only time we saw anyone. Couldn't find a/c remote so was very hot sleep. Can hear everything next door and in other rooms. Paid WiFi only. Steep staircase to rooms and kitchen.

all true! house is small and there is no reception desk. staff coming twice a day, morning and afternoon and always on your arriwall time. please write if you are late, so we will b there. if we are out, there is digital lock and you can go in alone. AC is not included in discounted rooms (this guest didnt pay it, so couldnt find it)! steircase in house? yes. this is my first low rating for location in 5 years, cheers!:).


Nice location, inside the city walls. It has a small kitchen with fridge and other basic stuff.. The room was nice. There was nobody working in the Hostel, except the cleaning lady in the morning. We just meet the owner for payment and to explain everything! We had a nice stay!


We had a fantastic stay at this hostel!

Guesthouse, not a hostel. Thx for all, great girls


Staff always absent (only saw them at check in after we waited for an hour until the neighbor was nice enough to call them), with signs around the hostel to call or text if we needed anything (as foreigner u don't want to pay extra charges IF your phone works at all) Light in the bathroom never worked (showers in the dark) No free Wi-Fi, just some signs saying every bar around town has free Wi-Fi (not that u would want to do your further trip planning in private...) No lockers


Great location! Really really friendly! No free wifi tho is abit annoying but there are plenty of cafes nearby for free wifi. The hostel has got a great vibe to it as well
