  • Very nice beds, small dorms. We had a dorm with a bathroom which was nice. You can hear people outside the dorm and in the courtyard from the dorms so bring earplugs if you want to sleep longer in the mornings. Nice breakfast.

  • The staff were lovely, although the Christian vibe is very evident. I felt a little intimidated by the religiosity, especially since I was there for Pride. Nevertheless, everyone was very friendly, the hostel was clean, and the breakfast was tasty. Make sure to book in advance, though--this place fills up fast!
