We really enjoyed our stay here. Friendly and helpful staff. We got a nice outside room with everything we needed. The common areas were really nice and to be able to spend some time in a jacuzzi with a cold drink is just luxury :) More

It's a bit small and dated, but the staff is really excellent and there are large common areas. I expect it's a good place to meet people, but I wouldn't call it a party hostel. More

We really liked the staff. They were friendly and very helpful. The rooms were okay - not much personality. The toilets and showers are outside, in some kind of extension. The kitchen is clean - which was very nice! But we believe that the hostel needs some new pots and pans. If you More
