brilliant staff, humble lodgings, but its a hostel so what do you expect? :) already planning on going back. The view of the palace across the water at night is worth it alone. Very centralised, 5min walk from old town.

Terrible place. It was imposible to sleep. It is beside a very busy road and the walls of the room do not stop the noise, so it's like sleeping in the middle of a motorway. The bed is very small, old and unconfortable too, but nothing in comparation with the noise. I've been in bad hostels around the world, and... More

Good hostel, nice staff, great location. The rooms are quite small but good for the price. If you are staying here i highly recommend climbing the hill just on the other side of the street for a great view.

Stayed in room 9. Room had a bunkbed that supplied sheets, blanket and pillow. If you want towels you will need to purchase at service desk. Staff was great and very helpful. The place was very clean and neat. In addition, the boat was very quiet during the day and at night. I would highly recommend this place and I... More

I'm in my mid-30s and traveled alone. I got a single room in the hostel and found it to be cozy, comfortable, and quiet. The bathroom was right down the hall and I had a beautiful view of the city from my window. Room included a small desk and nightstand as well as hooks for hanging clothes/coat, etc. I would... More

We went for my birthday for a week in winter and had a spectacular time. The cabins were comfy and cosy and really warm. The bar area was pretty active and the staff were fantastic and really helpful in every possible way (if you're reading this I'm sorry my review is a bit late guys). It's a hostel with cheap...

I thought this hostel was very average and exactly as advertised. I didn't rate very good or excellent for the following: 1) wifi wasn't working during my stay, 2) the hostel wasn't very lively. With that said, the staff was very friendly, the hostel was clean, and let's be honest... It was on a boat!

Great place! Staff is very kind and fun, everything is clean and IT'S A BOAT! How cool is that?! We chilled on the deck in the sun, was lulled to sleep by the slight swaying of the boat at night, and woke to the sound of rain hitting the water just outside our window. There's no wifi in the rooms,... More

(+) The staff was friendly, and available even at late night. The cabin was small but clean and my bed quite comfortable. The bathroom, although a bit worn off, was reasonably clean. (-) There was no washbasin in the toilets so I had to enter the ladies' bathroom just to wash my hands and brush my teeth. I don't really... More

Looks small from outside but when inside its very warm and cosy. 2 of us stayed for 2 nights to watch the UFC in January 2015. Very basic but the price is good compared to other hotels in the city. Free wifi was a bonus and the staff were nice and helpful.
