Great rooms and common space and facilities, all very clean too. Staff friendly and helpful! Location is perfect. Downside is that common space closes at midnight and breakfast isn't included!


the showers upstairs are pretty good


Staff super friendly, you have to ask to be let out though as they keep the door locked but then they don't actually check if you are staying there or not. Only 4 showers for the whole place and not the cleanest. Didn't see the kitchen and we missed breakfast so can't comment on those. Didn't really spend much time in the hostel so was fine for what we needed.


Most irritating place I ever stayed!!!Girl at reception not local,she was stressful and unhelpful at all!!!She cannot provide any basic information what to see in city,where to take buses and other tourist info,that hostels staff SHOULD KNOW!!!Just wandering what she doing there?You have to ask staff to open entrance door all the time,they are so scary about it!Stupid rules with no smoking policy inside property,even there is open air garden,No WIFI Internet in dormitories!Stressful place!!!


Ver y well located but the owner should Cléan more often. The kitchen Is small.


A really cozy feeling hostel with plenty of bathrooms. Also really close to a lot of restaurants and cafes. Never made it for breakfast so can't comment. The hostel felt secure and had giant lockers that for a whole backpack


Excellent location. But they are a little bit paranoiak about the door and the breakfast is very poor.


Poor management, otherwise a decent place to stay. I came home at night after extending my stay to find that, despite promising that I would not have to change beds, there was someone sleeping in my bed! The staff did nothing to help alleviate this problem. Also, they have a strange and dangerous policy regarding leaving the hostel. They lock the only door out from the inside, so everyone you want to leave you must find the receptionist (not easy) and ask permission. This is a fire hazard.


Good all round hostel, top location and good vibe. Stayed in the dorm which was big and comfy!


Nice hostal on a good location.

Good breakfast. Ride the acensor to get up the hill, its easier than walking.


Fun hostel with good breakfast and nice location. The staff are very friendly but must of them are volunteers who dont know a lot more than the basics about the town. Apart from that it is a cool place to hang out, which makes it easy to meet new people
