    What a great hostel! The hostel was very clean and the friendly staff was helpful. A bit out of the center is the only downside.....

    Lovely hostel in a beautiful place. The facilities were clean and the hostel was very welcoming with its decoration. It was cosy. The room a bit small for 6 people but for one or 2 nights it is the perfect place to stay.

    So the automatic check-in did not work for me. The outside phone rang for over 10 minutes with no answer. Another guest had to let me in, she said someone had had to let her in, and I had to let in other people later. The bedroom was fine, the bathrooms were nice and always available. The floor even felt heated in one, which was odd, but welcome. The staff were polite when they were there. It's a bit of a walk to town. Don't wear socks on the spiral staircase. It's slippery.
