Die Zimmer waren recht dunkel aber es gab Schließfächer, die viel Platz geboten haben. Der Pool mit Wiese und vielen Liegestühlen hat zum Entspannen eingeladen und auch die Duschen und Toiletten waren geräumig und sauber. Generell ist in diesem Hostel eigentlich nichts zu beanstanden und man kann dort gut für mehrere Nächte bleiben.

The hostel has a good location and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms weren’t that clean nor were the bathrooms/ kitchen. It is a great place to stay for a night or two.
