Friendly and helpful owner. He did the laundry for free. The wall are pritty painted and the location is good. The only thing which could be better: there was only one plug in the room.


Very friendly owner - he's a highlight of the place. The hostel is kept immaculately clean, it's spacious and laundry/printing is free. Great place to stay, highly recommended


This place was great. the owner was very helpful and accommodating. It was quietly tucked away from most of he tourists in town. walking distance to anything. we really enjoyed our say here. plenty of showers and bathrooms too.


This was one of the best hostels we stayed in while 9 months of travelling. Everything is very clean and the owner is very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again!


Nice place. The staff was helpful and gave us good advice and help with sight seeing and traveling. Little hard to find if going by bus. Get off the bus when you pass the little round about. The hostel itself had a good atmosphere but not an atmosphere to meet other travelers. They did let us use their stove to warm up some food. The brand of penutbutter was not good very disappointing on the penutbutter.


This is a very comfortable, quiet guesthouse. Pros: Extremely clean, breakfast included, fresh water 24hrs, washing machine on site. Nice communal area. Location: Not in the tourist area, but well located, many cheap eateries nearby, 10 minutes walking to tourist center. Cons: None really. If you are a partier, stay away! For families with children, perfect. We are an older couple, perfect.
