    This hostel is great! Walking distance to the old center. Good beds, very clean (I saw the bathroom being cleaned twice once in the afternoon and again the next morning). The autonomy of the hostel also worked really well for me. Because of the facilities (kitchen and seating area) it was easy to meet people. The staff in the morning were very friendly and helpful and very easy to contact through WhatsApp. I would definitely recommend this place and I would come back!

    The hostel is set up to let you check in independently and after speaking to staff through the app WhatsApp this system was very easy and effective. The hostel was clean and had everything I needed for the four nights and the other occupants were all very nice company and considerate too. It is worth noting that the doors and floors of the rooms squeak loudly every time somebody moves, I was not bothered by this but others may be and should equip themselves with ear plugs for example.

    Bathroom was pretty gross, and I never got the email with the “code” until I contacted three people (meaning I was waiting outside the hostel for awhile). Towels and breakfast were nice but overall wouldn’t stay again.

    Stayed for a night. For what I paid I expected more, the bed is fine and the 2 bathrooms are ok. Big locker. Breakfast was served late so I cannot comment on it. Location is very central.

    It’s an ok hostel but quite dark and noisy, the shower room door doesn’t lock and i got some sort of flea bites during the night. Breakfast was quite nice but very late. On the plus side it’s a good central location, they give you towels and it’s clean - overall I wouldn’t recommend staying here. I had booked 2 nights but wanted to leave after one and they still charged me for two - should have read the small print of hostel worlds “free cancellation”

    The overall idea of the hostel of not having staff present to save us, backpackers money is a good idea but it just does not work. Often people wonder in wanting to speak to someone about beds, woke up and there was someone sleeping in the living quarters. You cannot pay them on site as there was no one there so now I have the worries of remembering when am home to pay them which should be their issue not mine.
