Thank you for your review. I would like to inform you that rooms are cleaned Monday to Friday and bathrooms daily. We are not a new building, and furniture may be a bit old but we have a maintenance team that does repairs on a weekly basis. Best regards, The management team

The staff are either absent or asleep, thus, not very helpful at all. The reception is empty almost all the time, and when someone's working they rarely greet you. We had one of the private doubles, which are in fact not a part of the ancient stone building, but rather a shabby wooden house on top of the old stone building. The shared bathroom and shower that come with the doubles are in really lousy shape, during our stay they were never cleaned, nor did we get any toilet paper. Avoid.

Cool vibe and extremely helpful and friendly staff! The lady, whose name I've forgot but who had worked on The Backpack before, helped us out with basically every activity during our stay. Also, nice bar and a chilled out breakfast area. Add a pool to the facilities and I would've stayed forever. The only real downside was the security. I got the feeling that no one really kept an eye on the main gate, and the locks to the rooms/dorms were in lousy shape. Besides that, a great place! Recommended

Glad you enjoyed your stay. You didn't need to feel concerned about security - our gates are only opened with a code, we have 24 hour staff and CCTV cameras.
