This is a very nice hostel. There are every age guests and everybody mingles. There is a second quieter building available. No elevator. Room a bit small. A very nice kitchen, you can store food, cook. Bathrooms were clean. Shower had a good flow. Something to try. Have a great trip everybody.

One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at. These guys have thought of everything and know what they’re doing! Very clean, good space. Nice beds and lockers, great showers and bathroom space, super helpful staff. Doesn’t have as much of a community vibe as many hostels I’ve been to, but still has good community space and nightly events like free drinks. And a good kitchen too. Laundry on site and I was even able to rent a lock for the lockers when mine broke. Will store luggage too.
