    Stunning hostel - giant rooms, gorgeous garden, really big kitchen and living area. Not in the centre of town but a short walk via 2 really lovely parks by a river. Definitely recommend!

    I loved it absolutely! The atmosphere is wonderful. People who work here are really nice and helpful. The rooms are quiet, the mattress are really good and the beds fit well for a tall person. There`s a lovely shower room for girls only, the kitchen is perfectly equipped and the owners of the place are great pizza makers! It`s a good example of what a real good hostel is.

    a gem just outside the hustle and bustle of the centre (15 min away, but a really nice walk); a lot of common areas, so i could always find a different cosy corner when i needed to do some computer work (the big gaden in the back seems amazing in summertime)

    Really laid back, one of those original hostels with a nice kitchen, plenty of common areas and huge garden that is definitely very nice in summer. Really enjoyed that it is a bit off the beaten track and considering the low season..I could enjoy a longer stay with time for me.

    Amazing staff, good price. The hostel is spacious with a wonderful garden that you might never find in any other hostel. They are planting several things their own even a banana tree. Great atmosphere, Couches and hammock outside which makes it comfortable to socialize or to just chill outside. Free Coffee all day long in a wonderful kitchen which invites you to cook as you couldn't do it better than home. A dreamlike sleep on this very nice mattress. Its purely a hostel!

    A little far from the city center, but the walk is gorgeous along the river and through a park. The kitchen, bathroom, and garden are among the nicest I've ever seen in a hostel, and the staff were so helpful and kind! Thanks for everything!

    A bit of a hike to the old town centre and anything else you'd want to see, but a super hostel in a super building with super staff. Lots of space, quiet neighbourhood, comfortable beds, warm water, good prices.

    The men's showers had a very strong smell of mold. It is hard to gauge how big of a hygiene problem this is but i am unable to give a good score in this regard. The Staff and Atmosphere was nice. The location is a long (25 minute) walk outside of the historic center of the city.
