Staff was great and very friendly, although not all spoke fluent English. The free breakfast is on the meager side - it consists of toast and jam as well as some fresh fruit, but was still a welcome amenity. I thought that the overall facilities were up to par, as I didn't have an issue with cleanliness and saw staff... More

Not sure about the hostel but the food here is good! Pizza cooked over wood burning fire. Fresh made dough and ingredients along with big salads and burgers or vegan burgers to choose from. My wife and I love nearby and frequent this place. The staff is very nice too.

The staff were friendly and nice, but the facilities were lacking - only one shower for all guests, and there was no water pressure - it was literally just a trickle of water. Also, it was beyond dirty. In the shower alone there were 3 dead cockroaches, which leaves me wondering if that was what accumulated in just 1 day,... More

Weekend with the girls so accommodation was not our main priority, any bed would do, but the showers not working that is another story. Shower drip not fixed for 2 days, glad I only stayed 1 night. Mushroom burger is fantastic but breakfast could be improved as well. Salad fruit could be replaced by a fruit platter rather than yellow/brown... More

I don´t go to a hostel expecting a five star hotel experience, but this place charges an unjustifiable price for what it offers. We stayed in one of the ¨best¨rooms, the bathroom had several visible hairs in the shower and the mirror was dirty. I could probably forgive these flaws but for the fact that the place is charging 46... More

We booked here for 2 nights through youth hostel because it was the only one available (high season). We payed USD38 for a "private room shared bathroom", but when we got there we got no info about anything and were told the room was "semiprivate". Registration: pretty confusing, small reception. There was no electricity at the time (apparently this is... More
