It is cheap and dirty. I couldn't sleep all night because people coming drunk and shouting, bagging on the doors and wall. I really had a bad energy from the staff as well as they try to lure with the cab free,don't bother with that low class. I should have left when I came in. I have lost a night... More

Friendly staff, funky looking place, reasonably priced, and an excellent roof terrace with a spectacular view of the mountains. However, I would only advise visiting if you're absolutely sure you want a party hostel environment! There's nothing wrong with it, it's just not everyone's cup of tea.

24h-coffee and water was often out. The coffee tasted like tea as it was daily brewed in the tea pot. Most rooms don´t have natural light and are therefore quite dark and tiny. Bed sheets are used and old. Some rooms lack of hot water while you get to use the shared bathrooms on other floors. Besides it´s a 10-min-walk... More

Stayed here for two nights in the dorms. It was a great place to meet other travelers, full of youthful life, energy and music. The breakfasts were really tasty and the owner and staff are super friendly and helpful. It's just a street away from where all the bars are as well. Great if you're looking for some fun and...

One of the best hostels I have ever visited. The staff is extremely helpful and kind and the double room in super comfortable! The location is also pretty good and close to the city center. Couldn't recommend more.

It was a really nice place to stay, bedrooms or sharing rooms for a good price and breakfast included. We can say there were like a holiday family. The staff is one of the best I could meet on travel. Human and very kind, thanks for everything.

Nice and clean place, friendly People and good pricing. In comparision to other hostels in the city that we tried - this one was good. The guys from the reception were helpful and took good care of us making no pressure on money or reservations. Good idea to go there, but remember it is not a hotel where You could... More

Rooms vary in size, bed number and facilities meaning there is something for everyone - and at a reasonable price. Breakfast is free and normally consists of hot cakes, interior is nice, internet access is good and kitchen facilities are good. What really stands out though are the staff. Friendly, accommodating and pleased to help whenever they can - especially... More

My boyfriend and I (Ali and Madelon) stayed here for 4 nights.

They are there for their guests! Recommendable to stay in a room on the first or... More
