    This was the nicest hostel our family has stayed in. Our room looked more like a hotel than a hostel and towels were included. David at the front desk was super friendly and helpful, giving us great tips on where to eat and places to see that are off the beaten path.

    Super friendly staff (with a very cute dog also). Hostel is near the bus station and all attractions in the village. The door of each room is locked. However, we would have love to have a personal locker to put our own stuff. Everything else was perfect.

    Booked a private room for one night, upon checking in, front desk personnel were very nice and accommodating. Willing to store my luggage while I explored the city, as I checked in too early (took that heavy burden off my shoulders). The private room was nice, liked having my own personal TV, nice background noise. Hostel was very quiet which was a good thing. The hostel was about a five minute walk to an ALDI's, convenient for me as I needed food to cook rather than eating out. Enjoyed my stay.

    Very welcoming staff, beautiful cosy and quiet room, excellent location. The only issue is that the shower was way to hot on my floor, and temperature is difficult to regulate. For the rest, I highly recommend that place and I’ll come back :)
