no backpacker vibe as no common area to chill apart from reception area
very good place and wonderful owners and staff
very friendly owner who had lots of knowledge. Bit noisy at night - 2 doors that kept banging. Not so much the fault of the hostel but the people staying there. They need to learn how to close doors quietly or the hostel needs to put noise strips on the door jams, or educate the guests
Nice owner. Knowledgeable about city and where to go
Dorm was a bit clostrophobic - no windows
Nice place, good location, good staff - all a traveller needs. Only issue was one guy in the room the first two nights - wouldn't go to bed and sleep. Not the hostels problem but maybe a policy of lights out at 12 would be an idea ( and don't keep turning them on when you come in and out of the room at 1 am, 2 am, 3am .
Good staff, pleasant place to stay
