We offer high quality service at low prices for budget travellers. 'Run by travellers for travellers'.
The entire hostel was completely renovated inside and out in November 2013. we put in new bathrooms, new beds (with an individual reading light and electrical outlet), new furniture, new floors and new decorations.
we also installed new doors which close without making any noise, with electronic card locks for added security.
