It is good if you are looking for a quiet place to stay. A little bit far away from the busy place in old town but just right next to the bus terminal from the train station. Clean and nice but don't expect too much being as a Hostel.Not having a very warm atmosphere but good if you want a lonely place.

The hostel was very nice although had to walk across a construction area to get to it. The staff were disinterested and couldnt be bothered to even look up to answer questions.


The directions on Hostelworld on how to get here are totally wrong. They must have gotten messed up in the translation. My advice... when you got off at the termination of Bus 8 cross the street and keep going in the same direction for a block or 2 until you see the TIMELESS HOSTEL sign with an arrow pointing LEFT down an alley... follow the signs.

thx vaughn , we will correct this asap


Once we found the hostel down the small alley, we were excited to be there. However, it was 8:30am and we knocked on the door and no one answered. Finally, around 9:00 after banging on the door, one of the staff woke up and opened the door and said it wasn't his shift and the door should have been opened by 8. He made excuses but did not apologize for the inconvenience. The atmosphere would have impressed us, but the dirty dishes and beer bottles lying around left a bad taste in our mouths.

Nice and quiet place. Not to far from the centre but still quiet, near the busstop. Nice courtyard, but the bar was not a nice place, looked like it wasn't used. Staff was not very friendly.


Overall was a great stay! The staff wasn't that helpful, thus creating a weird atmosphere. Dali was beautiful and the hostel is located relatively close to Old town.
