Welcoming and smiling staff. Excellent breakfast with french bread, jam, cereals, fruit juice etc. Excellent location, everything walkable closeby. It's great for a short stay (max 2 nights) because the rooms are very poor but you got what you pay for and the rates are very cheap so it's ok.

This was my first hostel experience, and I joined tripadvisor just to give it a good review. It was a great value for the price. It was comfortable, clean, friendly, easy. I was expecting dorm style beds, but it was more like a loft apartment with beds everywhere. Maybe that sounds funny, but it was honestly a great, relaxed atmosphere.... More

Great experience, great staff, great if you're looking for someplace to crash for the weekend. We lucked out and got a private room with some bunk beds downstair. Could not of asked for more at 20$ a night!

This place has a really sweet feel to it. We stayed in a private room which was of adequate size, nice and simple. The only bad thing was the pillows which were waif thin... time for some new ones perhaps? Fold them over and you're good. Everything was neat and clean, and the people we met there were lovely. The... More

The thing I love about this hostel is the athmosphere. It's open, happy and Hippie! Where ever you sleep in the Hostel, it's the same price. You can crash anywhere you want to. The other two couple on our floor were very quiet and calm. The bed were clean and breakfast was provided. Love it !

We stayed for 4 nights. We were shocked at the start. Its more of an open plan hostel. Lots of beds, everywhere. We had a private room but in order to use the bathroom and shower we had to walk through the living room, which is not a problem but the living room was being used as a dorm. One... More

Either you love it or hate it... There are a lot of mattresses in this place, and small kitchen. It looks a bit improvisional. Almost no privacy, and everything is a bit narrow. In my opinion it is perfect for kind of Hippie experience.

This is honestly the worst hostel I have ever been to and I cannot understand how it meets standards to keep on trading. From looking on their website, the hostel seemed ok, however when we arrived it was nothing like what we expected. It is basically just a house with matresses thrown wherever they can get them. Some of the... More
