We splurged and booked the private room and were pleasantly surprised. King size bed, huge bathroom and balcony is definitely worth a few extra bucks. The staff was also friendly and very accommodating. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.


Great place to stay, lovely people...The room was nicely made, and the breakfast was good. We will see you again next time.


Best hostel I have ever stayed at. I would definitely return. The atmosphere, the layout, the location was great. Would sit around and share food with the other travelers. The owners are wonderful too. They really go the extra mile to help you. The breakfast is wonderful. Suggestions to the owner: Having an available fire pit for cold winter nights would be nice. Also if there were lock that would be available to rent that would be ideal for people who do not bring their own locks.

In wintertime, it would be nice to have some sort of heating to make the mornings less cold. Open up the windows when people are out, keep them closed when people are having breakfast. Just a small remark though, because we had a very nice time at the backpackers! Thanks to Lena and Erika. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to other people!
