Good location for "off season" - you are close to all location in the city but far from beach. The stuff was great, very nice. Hostel is old and we didn't get bathrom in our room as we made reservation. It was in a different room, but luckily there was no guests in that room. There was no hot water, but we didn't tell that to the stuff because it was New Years day and we left in the morning. Also you may have troubles with parking. All in all, cheap hostel, good for one night staying.


We read really good reviews for this place but ended up being disaoppointed. We were told that there was free parking nearby and we parked exactly where directed and ended up with a 500k ticket. We were utilizing the common room to plan for our upcoming destinations and the staff turned the volume up on the television three times and shushed us. Finally, the hostel is wallpapered with signs and rules to follow. It took away all comfort of being in that hostel.


We liked the hostel quite much. The atmosphere is nice and familial and not so uncomfortable and sterile than in other places. The problem was that we couldn't lock one of our doors of the room and also couldn't easily use lockers because the staff isn't there over night and we arrived really late. But I think that it's great that they trusted us so much with the keys: we got them overnight although we hadn't had payed yet.

Thin walls and you could here other customers through doors between rooms and doors to the hallway had windows where you kinda can see through. Not so comfortable.


Such a great stay, the family who runs this hostel are so kind, they all helped us with directions and tell us what busses to get on to see the best sites! It was a great stay


This was the best hostel I have stayed in so far! The staff were so welcoming and the hostel was kept VERY clean. Feels more like a guest house than a hostel and we had a lovely time!
