  • Awesome hostel. Everything explained very well on arrival and good tips about good places to eat/drink in town. Nice, social vibe which the staff help to foster. Never a queue for shared baths. Great breakfast! Very quiet at night and the room had shutters which madd it hard to get out of bed as they kept out the light so well! P.S. kitten/puppy loverd might get a nice surprise if they stay here...

  • Great place to stay the only minus is that the walls are not sound proof at all, you hear every conversation and vice versa. Saying this, it is a quiet place in general with the odd bit of drumming noise from next door. Pleasant place overall.
