Victor was very helpfull as he made our check in possible in the middle of the night.New Zealand lady also very kind and helpful.Great location,well equipped kitchen.Nice atmosphere amoungst travellers.HOWERVER,building needs good maintenance,bathrooms could use some tiles on the floor.paint is falling off walls,mould on walls in rooms,therefor it looks rundown. It's not possible to use hot shower during day as the switch it off. No note or something to inform guests. Very dissapointing!

Nice place, stunning room! Double bed was not a double bed, but 2 singles pushed together. They had a very hard wooden part, which was not so comfy. It was difficult finding the place due to lack of street signs. The appartment could also use the blue sign for Apartment. We were standing at a junction knowing we were close, but we just didn't know which door to knock first. Luckily the owner came out to help us.

Host was friendly and could have us early in the morning so we didn't had to carry our stuff around while sightseeing.Stairs were not easy to climb with many luggage but dint really bother us. Apartment is small and cosy but ok for short period of time. Wifi good, aircon didn't work well. We had a good time here!

Mrs Krile is a very friendly and helpful woman. We arrived early by nightbus, but it was no problem to leave our luggage early with her. We could even use the bathroom to freshen up. Spacious apartment, clean, nice bathroom. Lovely view from room over harbour and beach peninsular. The apartment is right outside the harbour. Busstation is also very closeby. It's a bit further away from the old center, but there is a few bus connections that bring you there right away.

I choose the hostel because i could have a free shower and storage after check out. When i arrived, i had an argument with the staff to pay for a hotdeal $2 per day in order to get the "free shower etc" in my opinion thats not free then (same for breakfast). If i'd knew this before i probably choose an other hostel. easy to solve this is, is riase the hostel price a bit.

Very good and cheap hostel! Staff is very welcoming and helpful! Choice of 3 different breakfasts, very clean, BIG bathrooms. nice rooftop bar. The only thing i could complain about is the beds. They are very hard.

Hi dear, Thank you very much for taking time to send your lovely review to our hostel! And we so glad to know that you had a great time at our hostel We will try our best to keep it up. So sorry for the bed we knew that but its seem like to hard to find a good one with the good standard to put it on the bed dorm size in Vietnam but we will change it if we find one ;). Enjoy your next time!

Perfect place to stay If you have a car. Friendly people, big room, kitchen too! A bit humid, so plenty of Mosquitos in the early evening

Thanks for your nice comments! Unluckely, the mosquitos live in green area and we don't use insecticide for saving other good insect and safeguard the environment... wishing see you next time, bruna and marco

The room was not too big. We had a room with a nice balcony. It got cleaned every day and after 2 days we got new towels. Very friendly and helpful owner. Downside is there is no breakfast provided and supermarket across the street asks ridiculous prices . Room is right next to the beach

This is a perfect location with a perfect view for a hostel. you can see the lake from your bunk. female dorm on first floor is quite spacious, with a balcony, but mixed dorm is really small no space to walk. The rooms were very very hot. 1 van is not enough to cool it down. showers are small and not cleaned every day. Good and cheap wine and 3 course meal dinner. pizza's are so so. it is not appreciated if you bring food from outside. for Just next to the ferry.

I had a perfect stay at florentine! The breakfast is basic. But when i couldnt sleep 1 night because it was to warm and without ventilation in the room, the next night they turned the aircon on. the owner asked me the day after if it was better now. on my last day i had to check out at 11, but as my plane was at 5 am the next morning, i could leave my stuff, have a shower and sleep on the couch for a few extra shekels. Really nice. There is a great vibe in the hostel!

This good priced hostel is right in the center. You have a beautiful view on the area when you stand on the balcony. They dont provide a breakfast. there are nice couches to crash on after an exhausting day. down side was, that local guys visited the hostel without invitation and thought it was normal to harass woman. informed the manager about this.It didn't happen again.

This was an amazing place to stay. Although its a huge, factory like, hostel, it doesnt feel that way. The rooms are spacious with ensuite bathroom. and if thats full, there is another bathroom in the hall way. They organize great daytrips, but also activities in the evenings. I very much liked the shabbat dinner and the games night. The bar is a great place to hang out.

The staff was very helpfull in giving tips and directions where to go and what area's to avoid. Thank you for that! On saturday they had a free pasta and sangria evening,, which was good. Nice atmosphere! Only downside was that cleaning lady smokes while cleaning, so you wake up with the smell of smoke. when you're allergic, thats not so nice

I slept with 4 friends in a room for 5. The bahroom was ensuite. Because i was with friends made the stay bearable, But if you sleep in the room with 5 strangers it might be very anoying to hear each other pee, you feel the bed moving when somebody walks through the room. There was very little space to put your stuff. A good thing about the room is: there are lockers.

There are no lockers to store your stuff. Wifi is only available in the kitchen which is closed during the night and eraly morning.. There are only 2 bathrooms. if a couple decides to take a shower for 45 minutes at the same time there is no toilet to go to. So after waiting 45 minutes i almost exploded.
