They were very helpful at trying to get me my bag that I lost in a taxi. They helped in every way they could but I never got my bag back.

generlly very nice hostel! the staff were very kindful but the hostel is way far from the city center...
There are no locks on neither the rooms, the bathrooms nor the showers. When ever someone enters the house you hear it since the house is kindda falling apart. The breakfast was ok and the garden was nice. It's ok for a night or two - but nothing special or with a good wibe.
The reception is located in a separate space from the rooms, this gives less control for the staff on what's going on in the common spaces, and people feel like anything is allowed. The hostel is falling apart, a tile fell off the wall without anybody being even close to it. The water pipes make strange noises. There's no locker. The kitchen is disgustingly dirty and poorly equipped. The staff didn't give the key to the rooms automatically. Spaces are narrow. Breakfast is nice though.
No front desk and door to hostel was often left open. A lot of the facilities that were promised were not available. Asked directions somewhere and next thing I know the employee was calling up this company and pressuring me to make a bike rental.
This hostel's description is misleading e.g. there are no lockers. Security is poor as the dorm lock does not work and anyone could walk in off the street and take your unprotected items. Although they clean every day it is difficult to maintain hygiene with only 1 cloth for dishes, worktops, floors etc. Many of the facilities claimed do not exist. It is a cold and damp building, which is a pity because with some care it could be nice.
I truly recommend to stay at this hostel. The staff was amazing and the room was pretty good for the price. They serve really good meals at the hostel bar, but will also give you valuable recommendation should you decide to eat out.
