    What a great place! The hostel is very clean, they even clean the shared bathrooms every three hours. The kitchen was great to use and it had everything we needed. It was also so great waking up to pancakes every morning provided by the owner. I would highly recommend!!

    Great breakfast, great staff although they could be petty sometimes. But they were cery very helpful with everything. Shower is great, a lot of lockers. Two kitchens with everything. There aren’t many places to meet new people besides the kitchen.

    This place was okay. The bed was comfortable and had curtains for privacy but there were gaps with the curtains, so it really wasn't that private. The location seems alright. I only stayed for one night and I got there at 6 in the evening and flew out the next morning so I wasn't able to tour the area. It's quite far from the airport, though, and the hostel does NOT provide airport shuttle service. Instead, they arrange a taxi pickup for you for 25 USD, which is not the same thing at all!

    Wouldn't stay again. Marc (guy at front dest) is quite an angry man and really brings down the vibe of the entire hostel.
