Thanks for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to seeing you again next time. :)


They advertise free wifi but you only get 1 hours worth per day which is very inconvenient when your wanting to search for jobs online!

Only stayed here for three nights and didn' venture around the city a lot, but for us the location was alright. Be aware that if you're travelling with a car, the hostel's parking spots are not for free! We weren't told about that when making the booking and had to find this out as we arrived. The bathrooms were alright, but the showerheads could have been fixed a little higher for the taller ones among us. The staff were nice, but not very helpful when asked about local recommendations.
