    I liked the peaceful atmosphere, simple rooms with terraces and the rooftop, where you can chill in the evening and meet new people. The location is simply perfect, staff always ready and helpful and the place is very clean. In conclusion, I liked it very much.

    This is such a lovely little place, and I'm so glad I stayed here. The hostel is beautiful, and the owner and staff are so nice and accommodating. I met some fantastic people, and everyone was so friendly. The rooms are spacious, and there's a nice roof to go relax on in addition to the common area. The hostel is really close to the Venetian harbor (like a 3 minute walk), and from there you can catch a taxi pretty much anywhere. This is such a lovely hostel, I'd definitely stay here again.

    Really good location- near the old town but quiet. Dorms were spacious and comfortable, the rooftop was nice. Kitchen was closed due to COVID.

    This place is well located to the ferry port and bus stations and ok for a night. The staff were friendly but the facilities aren’t great.

    No social vibes. Lots of random old people. Definitely no age restriction. Had a old dude above my bed who kept talking to himself 😅. But it’s close to everything and it’s kind of the only choice I had.

    Just..... No. Save yourself some disappointment and hypothermia and just get an airbnb. No hot showers, dirty bathrooms, the rooms were freezing and only had very thin blankets, and when I was there the were some very dodgy men living at the hostel.
