    Amazing hostel! Owner is super friendly and gave great recommendations on what to do, where to eat in the city. The beds are super comfortable and the ac is a godsend for the hot nights. Laundry was free which was so incredibly helpful! Any time I’m in town I will stay at this hostel! Adorable house cat as well

    Great location not too far from the main sights. Staff are really knowledgeable and helpful - they provide a detailed map of everything in the city and local tips like where you can withdraw cash without a fee. The free breakfast is pretty good and a great way to connect with other people at the hostel. Definitely not a party hostel so a good place to relax.

    Very comfy beds and clean facilities. The owner of the hostel is very helpful and supports you in any query. There is even a very delicious breakfast every morning. Only downside is only that the common area where the reception is not very appealing to hang out to meet other travelers.

    The English hostel was a clean, comfortable place to stay. There wasn’t a big communal vibe there for us to meet others. A bit far from the center but overall a good stay.
