Excellent hostel experience. The place had a very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was beautiful and had had a lovely balcony. However, there were some roosters nearby that crowed every morning from 5 to 10am. It didn't disturb my sleep though. The hostel is right by the east gate of the city, but quite far away from the city center, so you'll have to do some walking.


Staff was informative. Staff even walked and rode the bus with me to the airport shuttle so I wouldnt get lost.


We have a pleasant time staying here. The staff is very helpful and kind. Bedroom is comfortable. Bathroom is always clean. The location is perfect, it's near the East gate, easy to find and not too noisy.


Overall it was very good - location was away from downtown so it was nice and quiet. A good place to relax with 2 lovely dogs as well! Try to time your visit for a pizza night where the wood burning fire gets lit and the outdoor area is filled with expats and their families. Would happily stay here again.


Rooms clean, comfortable beds, electric blankets nice feature. Pretty garden Staff happy to cater for individual needs for meals Staff bilingual, very friendly and helpful. Good quality bicycles. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to others Suggest tea candles on patio tables in evening and cushions on benches would enhance café atmosphere.
