    Honestly the best hostel i have stayed in yet. It was very clean and had a very comfortable vibe. The host was very nice and always put out plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables for breakfast which I always looked forward to. The beds were comfortable and I never had trouble getting a good nights rest.

    Location is excellent. However, you'll have an 'oh s**t' moment when you first walk into the building, it's pretty run down. Once you get into the hostel itself though, it's very clean and well kept. I did notice one bed that had a couple small holes on the sheets, but that seems to be the exception not the rule. Super friendly and helpful staff, would definitely stay here again.

    Slowgate was very nice! The owners are not around very much, which made check-in a little strange. I received a code by email and got into the hostel with the directions they had sent me. The owner(s) are usually only there in the morning for breakfast and to clean the hostel. The husband is incredibly nice, though. He was very friendly and gave me excellent tips on things to see and do in the city. The breakfast was good, and the people who stayed there were friendly. I would stay here again.

    Nice hostel. Not too far from the city center but still a short trek. The owners are very nice, and the husband is an excellent help with tips and suggestions about the city. The little fort beds in the 8 bed dorm are really cool, too

    Modern, clean and comfortable hostel. Fresh veggies at breakfast was nice. Friendly staff. Not a lot of atmosphere for solo travellers wanting to meet others but it’s a great place for space and privacy.

    Very Good

    It’s a nice small hostel but unfortunately the beds were really hard and the lights on the bed side would just turn off every few seconds or minutes, really annoying. There is only two bathrooms so there was sometimes some waiting time. It’s not a vegan hostel, but vegetarian. The breakfast was ok but not what we expected from the description.
