    Location is great and we enjoyed our stay here overall, however, the lady on reception could be a lot more welcoming. Could also be useful to recommend some activities in the area or local insight into what's good....

    The hostel was well located and comfortable. Good rooms, beds, etc. nice courtyard. The hostel is small so when people party until 7 am with music blastingalmost outside your room is totally annoying. I am all for a party as long as it is far enough from the rooms so as no to bother the other guests. I had to get up at 5 am to ask that they stop the music and the party which had been going on since the night before. Apparently the owner or owners were partying with the guests too but left.

    The fact that we can't close the door lowers my opinion a lot and questions the essence of a youth hostel, what if we can't travel safely? I know there are lockers but you are supposed to be able to use a lock and not have to pay to secure your stuff Great place anyway

    I did not stay at the hostel, because the hostel did not answer my emails for a late checkin (midnight), did not answer my calls and finally did not open the door, so I stood there without accommodation in the middle of the night
