    Staying in this hostel was an amazing experience. It is outside the city in a forest - the most beautiful and calming nature is around you! You can get there if you take a bus for half an hour so it's not uncomfortable at all. The Villa is like an old palace: statues, painting on the ceiling, nice garden. The only thing I missed was a plug from my room but I could use the ones at the launch. The breakfast was very nice and the whole atmoshere just fills you up with energy after a long day.

    A beautiful hostel, far away from the centre but perfect if you like to be in nature. There is only one plug socket per room, no mosquito nets, no aircon. The rooms and bathrooms are closed between 10am-2pm so no lay ins. No way to secure your belongings inside the room. Also be prepared to carry your luggage for 20minutes when you walk up the hill to get there - the road is broken. Despite all of this I had such a lovely time and would visit again, hopefully they will make improvements.

    An amazing building with a location far away but the bus gets you most places. There was no WiFi in the rooms, only one plug socket per room and no lockers. No fans/AC and no mosquito nets.

    lockers had no locks, no privacy in the showers, the walk to the hostel from the bus station at night is terrifying with no lights in the forest walk. Breakfast was not great; bad coffee, cereal out of a plastic cup, no cutlery, the mini croissant was the only acceptable thing. outdated and messy

    Rooms seemed very small, sockets didn't work for phones and there was no cold water tap only red for hot water. Showers only had curtains no doors and toilets could do with being cleaner. The kettle was not in the kitchen and was very lime scaly so didn't look very clean to use. Long walk up to the hostel especially when dark

    The location is not ideal with a huge ass walk up to the hostel which honestly is scary af at night. Got verbally abused by some lady with her slamming on our door calling me a ‘stupid girl’ and threatening to break our door down if she heard us speak a word one more time... As a female going into the bathroom I felt unsafe and required my brother and his friends to accompany me to the toilets at night as there are a lot of weird men hanging around.
