    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.

    This is such a chill and comfortable hostel. It is easy walking distance to the city center and close to the river, which has a great walking path. The staff were so friendly and nice, I wish I could have stayed longer.

    It was great. The staff is really nice. Everything is clean and smells nice. After 10 p.m. it's quiet and you can have a good rest. The rooms are big enough and there's a locker for each bed, also. The back garden is amazing. Everything is just like a home.

    Great hostel with friendly staff and good facilities. The location is just outside the main area of the city but is right near the river which makes for a nice walk. The hostel was very quiet when I was there as it is no longer the peak season. The atmosphere is probably better during peak season.
