    Superb

    This is a really nice hostel! Set up more like a hotel, which I didn't mind. My only complaints would be that the bed was hard and not very comfortable and the wifi was really poor. You aren't allowed to download or stream anything, which is really unreasonable for a hostel, and the general quality was poor for even basic online activities.

    Fabulous

    02 Dec 2018
    We loved our room since it was bigger than we expected, quiet and water was hot. It’s a bit of a walk from the main area but still fine. There was little to no atmosphere but we didn’t mind sticking to ourselves. There was a wide range of age groups. Would’ve been great to have a laundry facility. Overall, would recommend.

    Very Good

    26 Sep 2018
    The room was really nice, with space, comfortable beds and a good structure. However, cleanness was not so good, because the only thing that the staff changed were sheets and nothing more. The trash was always full of stuff and that's not nice and even healthy.
