Organised tours very efficiently and in a friendly manner. Reception was a little understaffed. Safe feeling location.

The hostel was nice but a little dingy and tired. The staff, although helpful, could be encouraged to make visitors feel welcome and not like an interruption of whatever they are doing? A good vacuum would also not go amiss.

i like the old house where the hostel is. the staff were helpful and nice. the neighborhood is safe. free internet in the garden and reception. i wish they fix the wifi so the whole house can have it. my only issue is that it is not that clean especially the kitchen. but overall good vibe.
