Whatever can go wrong does. We've stayed in hostels as a family but this is the worst experience we've had! Mix up with the room, (we booked a room for 4, were travelling with kids, telephoned and emailed ahead and were always reassured we'd get a room for 4 only and would have it to ourselves), constant interruptions and confusion...

We're a family of 4. We can rough it with the best of them but when we book a four bed dorm that's what we expect. We emailed ahead twice, and phoned as well, to confirm our booking, and were assured it was all okay. But when we arrived we were shown to a six bed dorm with a room-mate... More

We booked 2 beds in a dorm just for the sake of enjoying the location and the view from the terrace, however, the hostel was a very pleasant surprise overall. Clean, newly renovated rooms, comfy beds, tasty food & beer at the restaurant. The breakfast was much more than expected too: cheese, ham, fresh bread, jam and very good coffee.... More

First choice was full up so .. Starting with the negatives Sat Nav blew a fuse trying to find it - I ended up ignoring every "no vehicles allowed" signs - only a motorbike could thread between the bollards - up 2 kilometres of winding path - passing a family of 5 dragging their suitcases on foot uphill. Finally end... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the double room. The location on top of the hill gives stunning views, even from the sleeping room. The decoration has some character and the breakfast which we could get outside on the terrace with view was good. The place has a lot of potential and seems likeable, including the fact that you can... More

Stayed for 2 nights. A very adventurous location. Book whatever you like but will likely not get what you booked. Be prepared to do a little bit of hiking, you will not be a happy camper if you have a lot of luggage. But once you're there the location will not disappoint. Rooms are mainly shared with bunk beds. So... More

We stayed there just for one night, we called first to be sure everything was alright with our booking. The only answer we received was to come to the hostel. Once we arrived there, no one welcomed us or was available to talk to, because the staff was busy with smoking. When we finally got attention by the women working... More

We stayed here for two nights and it was great! It is sort of attached to a used to be important fortress! That makes it so much more unique :D The walk with our heavy backpacks all the way up the hill was definitely worth it when we arrived! The view was stunning and looked just like the postcards!

This place is in a nice location with a great view of the city (minus the fact that it's a hike to get to...which can be creepy if you're alone). The beds are comfy but the rooms are quite tiny. The staff is not so nice & helpful - except the young guy. Everything was super clean. For the price,... More

Despite the lovely view from the mountain, this hostel has NOTHING to offer. Check in took a long time, they had no locker keys for us, most unfriendly people I have ever met, rooms/bathroom had beetles, and we could not check out in the morning as there was no one there! We tried to call the manager and knock of... More
