    Wonderful place, kept very tidy, and the heaters in the room actually worked! Super cozy! There was also a dashing reading nook where one could read while watching the snow fall.

    Loved it. Staff is so super friendly and even came to my aid when someone was bothering me in the bar. Very clean, cute, right in the middle of town. Bar is nice and stays open relatively late

    This place was great! Cozy, comfortable and very clean. Downstairs bar was a convenient spot to grab a drink, lively crowd but not overwhelming. Great location, walking distance to food, shopping etc. One of our favorite places we stayed on our trip. Price was very fair for what we booked, one of the most affordable of our trip! Highly recommend!

    Great Vibe and location. One consideration is the noise factor. Our room was very near a club and was quite noisy. I would still recommend - but would pack a pair of earplugs.

    Just note that bedding is not included in your accommodation pay. We had to pay extra for a blanket. This should be noted on the website. We delt with one particular staff member who was very rude. She didn’t even tell us where the showers were. The location is great but can be a bit loud when sleeping. All in all it was a good stay, would have been better if the staff member had a smile on her face and wasn’t so rude. I unfortunately didn’t catch her name, all the other staff members were great

    I think the linen charge of over 1000 is totally ridiculous, linen should be included in the price on hostelworld! And strange that the hostel has no printed information regarding the hike up Sulur. Also, the lockers are too small for a full size back pack. Had to make my own bed. Other hostels around the world do these types of things better. Good location, clean & a nice kitchen.
