    Really nice rooms. The solo rooms are in a different building than the main reception. The reception is at the top of the stairs, which is difficult to find if you don't know. Overall a pleasant experience though.

    HORRIBLE! Worst owner. Bathroom full of black mold. No hot water to shower. The two of us showed up and they screwed up our booking and only had 1 bed avaliable in seperate rooms. Waited at reception for 4 hours and repeatedly called for service. NO 24HR reception. Everyone at hostel couldnt understand how they have a high rating. I had to fight the website to get an email to leave this review. I think their rating is rigged and false. DO NOT STAY HERE.
