We took a tour of 20 people here and this is definitely great for groups. The beds arn't the most comfy, a little lumpy but the bathrooms and cleanliness of this hostel is fine. Breakfast was nice and the staff are lovely too. Great location, there is a bike shop just next door where you can hire pedal bikes. It's... More

Stayed here on a uni trip and manh of us were dreading staying here. Not sure what some of the bad reviews are about. The price reflects what's avaliable: bed and breakfast. Rooms are clean, only real problems are no ladders to the top bunk (came home with a bruised shin from getting down) and the bathroom was small and... More

I think it was better than what i expected although the price was quite expensive for what it is.. considering we had a shared dorm. Girls if you are travelling with just another girl or a few of you make sure you have a private room to yourself. I did not trust the guys that were in our room one... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and everything was ok, warm water, heater etc.. Breakfast is acceptable I ended full every day. Atmosphere is great, good chance to meet young people. I'd give 5 stars if it wasn't for that horrible noisy speaker in the room that's used to announce happy hour or call the staff.

The rooms are very basic, but clean. We slept in a double room with en suite (a bit funny, because the shower and the toilet was in the room and was only separated with a glass wall). Excellent location, you can walk or cycle almost everywhere (bike rental is opposite the hotel). The staff are very friendly. It can get... More

Hi! Thanks for your comment. Our rooms get cleaned every day (including change of towels and bed linen), but when you share a room with other guests, they can get the place messy after cleaning. Our breakfast includes freshly made pancakes, fruits, cereals, coffee, tea, breads & spreads and more, so actually our breakfast is really great! Did you stay... More
