    Such lovely owners, who were always willing to help! The breakfast was great value for money, and the roof terrace was such a nice spot to relax. The rooms were cleaned every day, and the communal areas were always very tidy. Couldn’t recommend enough!

    If you are looking for a chain hostel, this isn't it. But if you'd like to stay with a hostel run by a local family with more of an authentic experience, this is it. The staff is super helpful and you'll have plenty to do. The wifi is good (50-60 Mbps) and it has an amazing rooftop to socialize, catch up with work, and see the sunset. They also have an adorable puppy, Loki who is fun to play with. Overall, this hostel is legit and I highly recommend it. Walking distance to main square as well.

    Highly recommend a private room if you stay here- largest room we’ve stayed in. Clean facilities and secure location. Only major issue was the bathroom outlet shocked us every time we used it. It also didn’t feel quite like the kitchen was for guests, mainly for staff. Although eating out is cheap. Overall fine stay.

    Nice clean hostel with roof terrace, quite quiet with not much socialising. The rooms are very small and quite hot so hard to sleep at night
