    The hostel is very clean. In the room of 8 people we have enough space for each person. The garden is enjoyable. Breakfast is included (have to set a time because of covid). The staff is really nice. Overall very good experience. I recommend 100%. Plus you can go on foot to the city center.

    The environment is super nice. The place is beautiful and very well kept. The staff is also very kind. Excellent value for the price. It just isn't as central as I expected. But if you enjoy walking it is perfectly fine!

    Very Good

    Pros: spacious hostel, affordable price, breakfast made to order, relatively clean, lockers with keys included. Cons: it’s around 15 minutes to walk to the city center, they have limited hours for check in and check out, it didn’t have a great atmosphere for meeting other backpackers (also seemed family friendly although not sure if the children were staying in dorms shared with other guests). The beds were comfortable but it felt quite cold inside the hostel both day and night.

    hostel's around ammenities but if you like to walk it's a bit far from main points. I sent my Covid cert 72h in advance but they waited until I got there to say that I couldn't stay there. after a long discussion she said it was ok. Be aware that the reception is only open from 3pm to 9pm and there's no flexibility at all so if you have a late/early flight don't stay there. The sink in our bedroom was blocked for the 7 days.the shower door wouldn't close. Very rude and unpleasent recepcionist.

    Was ok. Very clean. Strange rules. No access to fridge & kitchen between 9.30pm and 7.30am. So better dont leave anything there.

    Não recomendo esse hostel, eles não facilitam para solucionar problemas, mesmo quando você está sendo o mais prejudicado. A gestão responde o emails com tom de arrogância e grosseria, não tem capacidade para abolidas as situações e assim resolver. Não recebi o email com as regras do lugar e mesmo assim queriam obrigar a seguir algo a qual não tive nenhuma informação prévia. Não recomendo definitivamente
