I really enjoyed my time here, the staff is super nice and friendly, the hostel is always clean, the breakfast is delicious, there are good places and chances to meet people and there’s always something going on. The mattress could’ve been better and maybe more fans are needed in the room. Made some good travel friends and ended up staying two extra nights. Would recommend!
