The view from the bar is what makes this hostel special and worth staying at. Other good points are the comfy beds, lights at bed spaces, good breakfast (costs extra) great English speaking reception staff and great travel agents. Bad parts were the cleaner noisily coming in at 7.59 am, the night guard coming into the dorms without knocking and no explanation why and the disorganised breakfast service ( we constantly had to go and ask for missing items, including cutlery)

This is a fun hostel with outstanding views from the rooftop terrace/ restaurants. Breakfast and dinner is offered at reasonable prices with coffee and tea free all day. Best showers are on the 2 nd floor. The staff is lively and helpful. There are a lot of stairs, so if this is a problem for you, this is not the place for you. For me, the hike to the terrace was worth it. Loved the Secret Garden. Great location for viewing the historic center.

Nice room with two single beds and in room toilet. Only had to share the shower. Good value for the money. Room is a bit noisy sec to proximity to stairway and echo in the hallway but no complaints. Still worth it!

Great hostel. We were there for New Year's Eve and had a great time. Hostel is really sociable and the roof top terrace was great. Rooms were a little on the small side but lockers provided.

Really nice place in a good location and an awesome view from the terrace. Good breakfast (USD2.50) and they also serves a tasty dinner every night (USD4-5). There could be a few more toilets but plenty of showers.

Nice hostel, although the stairs to get anywhere do get annoying! Unbelievable view from the roof top bar/restaurant. I would suggest the small Italian turning left out of the hostel and about 20m down the hill. Very quite hostel.

This is a nice hostel and attracts many travellers so is good to meet people, but one thing which isn't made clear is that all common areas are closed at 11pm. There is nowhere to socialise in the hostel after this time and everyone is either told to go out or go to their rooms.

10:30 check out is too early and time restrictions for the usage of the terrace are (even during the weekend) too strict

Owner Comment (Hide)
Checkout time is 10.30am, but guests are welcome to leave bags in our free baggage storage, and hang around all day if they wish. Guests who have checked out can stil enjoy the free high speed wifi and free tea & freshly brewed coffee. We'll even lend you a towel if you wish to take a shower later in the day eg before catching a night bus/flight. Our terrace restaurant/bar closes at 11pm - there are usually a lot of guests sleeping after this time who appreciate the place being nice and quiet.
