  • Some points this hostel advertises with are simply wrong. I want to list them: - "guests receive free 50mb of internet during their stay" -> No. Just 30 MB and 30 Minutes per day, if one of both is reached first Wi-Fi is no longer accessible. - "Our free breakfast is served from 8am to 9am." -> Just in the winter months I guess. I got there in may and no breakfast was served. But all in all it was ok. Wi-Fi exists in the city library and the supermarkets aren't that far away. Good to start.

  • Felt like we were on a shady motel, smelled weird and the room was really small. The kitchen opened at 7ish and closed 10pm, this was a problem for us when we had to catch a early bus. Brekky is only included on winter season and wifi was 30mb a day. But for 1-2 nights for that price its alright

  • The frontdesk attendant was very rude, there was a clandestine guy in our room and they charged $50 bond for each key.
