    Great hostel. The building may be a bit old, but facilities are in perfect state, perfectly clean (toilets, and shower are great!). Only thing that could be better is breakfast.

    This neat place seems like it might have been a barracks with a wonderful park next door with freely roaming peacocks which might have been the parade/training grounds. It is a little dated but like most municipal places I've been to, seems well maintained, There is a central kitchen/dining room where they serve a light breakfast with delicious fresh baked rolls. The rooms have wooden bunk beds with thin mattresses but the staff are quite friendly and very helpful.

    The hostel was great! We got greeted by Selma who helped us with everything! The location was perfect amd the hostel itself was very friendly and the people staying there were nice as well. The breakfast is simple, but a good one nevertheless. It can be a bit noisy from the indian peafowls that are in the park next door but I didn't mind them at all. All in all, I definitely recommend this place, if I ever come back I will stay here again.

    I only stayed one night but I got a good impression from this hostel. It's about 15 mins walking from the train station. The staff I spoke with were nice and friendly. There's a free breakfast and they lend towels. The bathrooms were clean and spacious. The atmosphere was very quiet while I was there, but for me it wasn't a problem since I prefer to relax when I'm done with a day of exploring. Overall I'd recommend this hostel for those who want somewhere to rest when traveling.

    Basic hostel. Staff were great, free breakfast was a bonus. Beds were comfortable. Loud music playing outside while trying to sleep was annoying, earplugs didn’t help. Fine for a cheap hostel for a night.

    Basically a normal place to stay. Though the beds are quite small. I'm 181 and it was not possible to stretch my legs. Breakfast is quite a small thing but at least there is something. Stuff is very nice, helpful. Great park next to the hostel. Peacocks can be loud sometimes :D

    An ok hostel, kitchen was very small and not very well equiped, the bunks were very rickety, there was only one key per room not per person. Breakfast was ok and the terrace was nice, location was good.

    Awful stay. We were only there for about 6 hours before a 6:30 AM flight but they were unbearable. The room was excruciatingly hot and only had one rotating fan for a 6 person room. The upper bunks couldn’t even feel it. There was also only one key for the room that had to be shared and dropped off at the front desk (so it remained unlocked if anyone was in the room).
