    It is not one of these hostels where you will meet a fellow backpacker who just opened his own hostel. With a separated reception area and a backyard that is ugly it is quite anonymous. We had problems with clean linen but got the money back in the end. The owner told us that they will renovate and get new beds. That is absolutely necessary as the price is far to expensive for the beds and service provided. It can be compared with hostels charging 9 pounds per night. The free breakfast is ok.
