This might be the best deal in the Bahamas. I booked what I thought was a shared room, but had it to myself. I could not have been happier!
I booked a dorm and when it was full they moved me into a single, so I had an amazing deal! The wifi only works on the terrace but for the price, it was well worth it.
The staff was great and very willing to provide as much information as you could ask. I stayed in the dorm and there was a heater that I could control, making the room the perfect temperature. Wifi worked well in my room.
All was good except when I arrived. Their webpage showed: 4-bed dorms from 8 euro 11-bed dorm from 7 euro Summer season prices are higher, please inquire additionally The price showed was 7 euro for 11-beds. When I arrived Toni told me the price was 8. When I disputed the amount, she told everybody else paid that amount and she could return my money. I then booked on this site and paid 7. But she made out like I was a bad person for wanting the right price- weird.
The owner is very cool and he cooked me up a great breakfast. It is nice that you can do a load of wash for no extra money. I was alone in a 3 bed dorm but if it would have been full, the room was quite tiny. Also the price for the room is only 10 euro however if you book on this site they charge you an extra euro which is annoying, so I would book via their facebook page.
The owner is great and very helpful. The location is good. The only thing when we were there the sauna was not working and the jacuzzi did not seem appealing. But overall really great deal!
I was the only person in the 4 room dorm so I had a single for under 10 euro and I got the room closest to the reception so the wifi worked great- an amazing deal for under 10 euro!!
The price of $13.50 for a single room with good wifi and a sink in the room right at the foot of the mountains is an amazing deal!
I never saw the staff other than going to the restaurant next door to pay. So if you are wanting help from the staff, it is not likely. And it is a good 20 minute walk from the station. However the wifi worked well, the dorm is huge and the kitchen is nice and you can not beat the price, so I think it was a great value.
It is close to the train station and the staff was friendly
There are no locks for the lockers, so if that is important bring your own. The wifi worked in my 6 bedroom dorm so I was happy about that. The room was very clean.
There were no lockers for your valuables and he dorms were connected, meaning you had to go through 1 to get to the other, meaning a lot of people passing through. Also although the woman who worked there was lovely, she was not there quite a bit. However the price was so reasonable that the value for the money is excellent.
I asked for a good wifi connection and the staff put me in a room right next to the router.
The place is very convenient if you arriving at the train station, just a short walk.
The owner is very nice and always smiling. When I asked how much to do laundry she said there was no charge! I had a 4 room dorm but as it was not crowded she kept my by myself. The wifi was very fast in the room. For 13 euros this was one of the best value places I stayed.
The hostel is very close to the station and the owner will give you all the information about the area in detail.
They are charging a bit much for a dorm without breakfast but otherwise the place was nice.
The wifi does not work in the room however a dorm for 2 is a great value and you might end up with the room by yourself.
38 degrees- no air, no fan, the room- oven. Since it was hot we left window open. My 4 bed dorm touched patio. You could reach your hand in from outside. Cigarette smoke drifted in. People made loud noise after midnight. 2 girls brought guys(not from our room) in at wee hours. At 5:30am a drunk girl returned with a guy to patio talking loudly & he was not from hostel! The front door is always open. No toilet paper in the morning. Atmosphere good for young partiers who do not wish to sleep.
I had the option when I arrived to pay 20 euro without breakfast and for a single room with fast wifi I was very happy! The hostel is a 8 minute walk from the bus station away from the city which can be good or bad depending on you. When you leave the bus station and see the highway (away from the city) go there and cross the bridge. There is a pension sign without a name, the pension is to the right, not the left. Then it will then be the first driveway to the left.
The wifi did not work and after investigating I was told it kept switching off and had to be restarted every 1/2 hour. Since they leave at 6pm and nobody is around there is no wifi. Also there is no air condition or even a fan so it was quite hot.
The only shortcoming is they do not have a kitchen or even a fridge. But otherwise it was very nice.
The wifi did not work in my room, very annoying
This is a new hostel and the owners are amazing! I wanted to do the new seaside walk to St Nichols Fortress but the start is 5 kilometers away. So they drive me and then picked me up after! They allowed me to do laundry for no charge! They were always smiling and helpful!
The price and location can not be beat
It is great that there is a supermarket next door. Also the directions were a bit confusing to arrive at the hostel. I came from Hvar and leaving the boat the hostel was to the right, away from the Old Town.
I was here during a festival. Although nobody at the hostel I met went to the festival, the rates were much higher than normal. Thus I paid more to stay in this dorm than any place else so far in Croatia and so it was not a great value.
I was lucky and was able to get a private room and only pay for it as a single! The owner was very helpful and is able to get all his guests a discount on the boat to Hvar
This is a party hostel and they do a pub crawl every night. Most people seem to love it. The only problem is they are partying in the main area of the hostel before going out and if you want any quiet, it is not possible. Also once they leave at 10:30 or 11:00 they lock the common areas and this was bad for me as I was waiting to use the wifi with some quiet.
The main problem I had was the wifi was not good. It is in the owner's apartment and you have to move real close to have it work. This is not comfortable or convenient.
When I arrived on Sunday wifi was not working, only in the common area. They were fixing it on Monday but that did not happen. They knew I had to use wifi to work so on the 3rd day I was switching hostels. They actually got it fixed and felt bad and gave me a free night. I was quite surprised- great customer service! And this is a young party hostel however my room was very quiet and I could easily avoid the partying. Easy place to meet people- which I did to find others to rent a car.
Alex and Gina are great! They are full of information and a delight to talk with. The meeting room/kitchen is a place to congregate and socialize. The wifi worked in the room and was peaceful, even though in a dorm. Great place and highly recommend!
It is super close to the station, the air worked great in the dorm, the wifi worked well and the staff were friendly and helpful.
The room was really nice- air condition, private bathroom, television. for a great price They picked me up at the bus stop!
The website advertised air condition, but they did not have it. They did not even have fans. And the windows did not have screens and mosquitoes entered the room. It was so hot I was sweating but had to put cover myself with a sheet to keep away the mosquitoes. I only managed about 3 hours of sleep. Also while the staff were very nice, they could not direct me to the bus correctly for either Lake Koman or Ulcinj. It is a new hostel with potential but until they solve there air avoid this place.
I love this place! It is a great place to chill out. It is in a very good location. The directions to arrive at the hostel were perfect. I enjoyed talking to all the members of the staff and a special thank you to Lira and Martin! They did not seem like staff to me but rather friends!
When I could not find the hostel I called them and the owner came right over to pick me up with his car, even though it was just a few minute walk!
I really enjoyed this place and the owner is great. He will answers all of your questions. The atmosphere is great and it is easy to meet people. I think they do a nightly dinner, at least they did on the 2 nights I was there. The only issue would be there were only 2 toilets.
I really liked both the owners. When we arrived Klaus took us on a tour around the city and in the evening took us to a great dinner on the lake. Then Lira came the next day and cooked me a great fish dinner and we enjoyed hours of chatting with a few beers. The swimming pool is great!
For 5 euros, you assume something will be wrong, but this place was perfect! The owners are great- super helpful and friendly. He drove us to the bus station. Laundry for 2 euro. I highly highly recommend!
The owner really wants to make the hostel the best possible so if you have any suggestions, she will listen.
The owner is amazing! He goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. It was Saturday when I arrived and in the evening when I came through the lobby he invited me to have a beer- as he did all the guests. Whenever the glass was running low he refilled it. Later a group of us went to the bar. He had to leave early and as he left he informed us he paid the 1st round! Highly recommend!!
It is a great place to stay!
We really enjoyed our stay. Because there were not many other guests it seemed like our own apartment . The owners were very nice!
We asked to do laundry and they allowed us to use the machine and did not charge us! They allowed us to stay around the hostel on the day we left until the evening as we left on a night train!
It is in a good location and you have access to kitchen and the wifi worked well in the room!
We had a great stay! Donnie and his mom were super nice. They went out of their way to make us comfortable. It is just a few minutes walk from the bus stop in Old Town. We had lots of nice conversations and he even drove us up the hill for a beautiful view of the city. He gave us coffee, let us use their washing machine and drove us to the bus station when we left- not charging us at all! Highly recommend.
My boat did not leave until midnight and they allowed me to stay in the lobby until I had to leave.
The biggest issue is the wifi. I slept in a separate building and there was no wifi and you had to come to the lobby- where it did not work great. However the new manager said she was trying to get it upgraded so if it is important, you should email her and ask. Regarding location, it is obviously outside of Venice but it is a short walk to the bus/ train station and for the price, it is a great value.
The problem is you can only use wifi in the restaurant and it is closed a majority of the time.
When I went out and returned to the hostel there was nobody there and the doors locked. I had to wait a while to get in. I stayed at the hostel in February and was the only guest so I kind of understand, but it still should not happen.
I broke my ankle and it was put in a cast after I had checked-in. I had booked for 5 nights, but I could not stay with 3 flights of stairs and bunk beds. It was already 7pm when I was leaving and I had to pay the first night, but they did not charge me for the other 4 nights and it was appreciated.
