  • Hands down, the best hostel I've ever been to. It smells nice, the staff is super friendly and the accommodations are excellent. It is about a 25-minute walk to the city center, but it is not bad at all.

  • It is a good hostel. The staff is very helpful and rooms and kitchen are well equipped. The only disatvange is that the hostel is about 10-15 min walk from the city center (but it is not a great problem)

  • Our stay in this hostel was perfect: the nicest and most friendly staff, a clean (it even received an award on cleanliness in July 2013), calm and comfy place! I highly recommend it! The only "negative" point is that it is a bit far from the Old Town, around 15-minute walk, but this drawback is offset by all the positive aspects of the Light House! And even if we were supposed to leave on Friday morning, we were allowed to use the common spaces until Friday evening (our bus was at 11 pm).
