    Great hostel at the perfect location. Pretty basic but what do you expect right? My only real grumble was the size of towel (hand towel) and there was no blind or curtain on the window right next to my bed I was sleeping in. Other than that everything was great. Breakfast is good, staff friendly and everything was clean!

    I stayed at this hostel for four nights and I felt really comfortable. The breakfast is pretty awesome especially regarding the price. It felt really safe as there are two codes you need to enter the building and there were lockers in the rooms. The staff was nice as well and trying to make sure everything worked. The hostel is like 2 minutes from the river and about 15 minutes walking from the main square. It is located at a big street, but the noise was okay with closed windows.

    It has been a really nice stay! Very close to the old town and with all facilities nearby. Distance from the airport just 25 minutes by direct bus. Bus stop is in front of the hostel. I will come back!

    This is a nice and chilled hostel. Definitely not a party hostel and attracts more mature travellers and families, however there were still younger travellers. The breakfast is great, it has an oven, microwave, kettle, fridge and freezer. The common room can be quiet and there are no organised socials so you have to make more of a personal effort to interact with the guests. The bathrooms are very clean and beds comfortable. The rooms can get hot at night and also noisy as it is by a busy road.

    Nice hostel, location is very good and the receptionist is nice. What I didn't love is that doors to rooms have no keys and anyone can come in. However it's a rather laidback hostel, there's no much party. If you're looking to rest after exploring the city it's a good choice. Breakfast is included.

    I was in a room with only permanent residents and as you would expect, there was no way to meet fellow backpackers, and my room was very dirty and smelled awful. Staff was very kind though.
