    The facilities here are quite lovely and clean, a great vibe, and a decent location that's only a ~10-minute walk from the main street in town. The staff is what makes this hostel incredible: so personable and helpful.

    Loved my stay at Folk hostel! The staff is very nice and helpful, it is very clean, and the free breakfast is fabulous! It also has a good sized kitchen with plenty of space for multiple people to cook at the same time. Also a very good location, 15 min walk from the town center.

    Breakfast is great (a buffet!). Located a 5 minute walk to the bus stop, but a bit further from downtown. The beds are comfortable and have lockers underneath. I was happy though that only 5 beds where used in the 8 bed-dorm because I think it would have felt a bit cramped if all the beds were occupied.

    A solid 10/10. Super location, helpful bilingual staff willing to go above & beyond! Breakfast is basic but grand. The kitchen is fully stocked, showers are hot & powerful, & the location is excellent. Would return & in fact we did: twice. Loved it x

    Clean and modern hostel located conveniently between the bus station and town center. Staff was nice & informative. Breakfast basic but good. I slept comfortably. Very good showers. My only complaint is that the toilets could use more cleaning, the trash cans were often overflowing. A little on the pricey side.

    Super clean hostel, friendly staff, great breakfast, location close to bus stop and downtown. Only complaint was that there was no AC and the windows don't open so the dorm was quite hot at night.
