Exactly what you want in a hostel. Cheap, cheerful and fun. Good social area and the fact it's situated next to a bar, which offers great specials, is ideal for meeting new people. Free breakfast is always a plus as well

We got a different room, less crowded and didn't have to pay extra at all! Free breakfast (Really cool if you have a hangover) + the neighborhood/environment is nice! Would recommend :) If water is your element, you are at the right place! (Nearby the harbor)

I went back to reception and after discussing it with the manager he kindly put us in a private room for 2 nights, and then a dorm for the... More
