    I’ve stayed in many hostels all over the world and this was the greatest so far!! Said the manager was very hospitable, friendly and accommodating to our needs. He, and the rest of the staff, went above and beyond to make us feel at home. They socialized with us every night and even cooked dinner for our group. I highly recommend everyone to stay in this hostel, you won’t regret it!!!
