    In love with this place. It’s a beautiful building and while it’s a little old, the facilities are up to scratch. Kitchen in the hostel is a bit small but other than that it does the job. Staff were friendly at reception and the bar. Good spread put on for the breakfast option too.

    Stayed in mixed dorms, have to pass by the dining area to go to the room. Toilets and kitchen are clean. Just 2 blocks away from town. Wifi is 1 hour limited access but will refresh for every hour.

    It was a sort hotel room with bunk beds, so it didn't really have a homey vibe. But other than that it was good.

    The Hostel was So-so. I only recommend it for the location near to the Centre. No lockers, the beds were not comfy and very very creaky, we all (5p) woke up very tired because every time somebody was moving in his bed, you could hear it. Toilets and Showers were in a building in front of our, just 10m but still annoying when it's raining... To sum up it would worth it if it was from 5$ to 10¨$ less expensive. Cheers.

    Weird vibe to this hostel, in reality a hotel with some dorm rooms out the back of the dining room. No social areas or anything apart. It was really cold in the hotel and rooms. The staff were quite variable, some very willing to help and some really not. Located about ten minute walk from the central square and across the road from one of the two museums, although about twenty minute walk from the other better museum. Not the best hostel but it’ll do for a couple of nights.

    This place is very dirty. There are marks all over the room. There is mold in the shower. Everything is dirty. The staff told me the kitchen had an oven. The kitchen has no over. This place is cheap that is the only positive.

    Weird atmosphere. They push the backpackers to the back away from everything. The kitchen wasn’t very good and the bathrooms were shared. Which would be fine but the stalls are not full walls so it’s not as private as you might want. There is only very small lock boxes so you’re relying on your roommates to lock the door to your room after they leave.

    This was a disappointing hostel. First, they do now seem to know if they are a hotel or a hostel and consequently get a very large array of people coming through. Window latch was broken so couldn't be locked. Kitchen didn't have much in the way of cooking utensils, and the stove was broken. Got poor vibes from this place - not fun at all. Would recommend elsewhere.
