During the first days of our visit the hostel was not clean as the owner was on vacation. Once she came back it became much better.

Hi there, we are a little bit confused about your comment. The owner has not been on a holiday for a while. We're not sure where you received the information from that the owner was away. Regardless, everyone at our hostel always conduct the same routine of cleaning on a daily basis, so we're not too sure what you're commenting on. Thanks anyway for your comment.


I will recommend this place a lot! Very helpful staff and great atmosphere. I will definitely come back.

HI there, sorry that it was a bit noisy for you. We do have a rule that noise to be kept minimum from 11pm in the living area inside and in the hang out area outside we asked the guests to lower the noise level by midnight. As you can see we posted the signs everywhere. Apart from this, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our hostel! Hope to see you again soon :)


nice place
