  • Hostel is alright, close enough to the center and ok facilities, not a crazy atmosphere in it or with the staff but it's decent.

  • By far, my favourite hostel! Everything is clean and has that 'still new' feel to it. Rooms were clean and air conditioned! Staff were awesome and the in house meals are great vaule for money and oh so tasty! I had a great time here and there is always a party to go to!

  • Nice location and clean hostel. Although on the whole we have been a bit disappointed compared to other hostels, no place to cook your food, the mattresses we had were quite old, the springs really hurt after sleeping a whole night on it. Again compared to other hostels we had the pleasure to stay in the atmosphere was not the best, there was no bar in the hostel.

  • Staff are fantastic, all very friendly and happy to recommend unique places to your taste, rather than just the generic tourist list. Also very helpful with directions, public transport, etc. Lots of activities planned by the hostel or pick up offered from the hostel. 5 euro dinners were delicious!

  • Good location. Rooms were hot and not so clean. Showers were pretty gross. Staff friendly. Nice hangout rooms.
