The Witch's Hat has nothing in common with all the hostels I have been in before. It feels like home. I stayed in room 16, a double room which was clean and comfy. The kitchen is clean as well and every person gets their own plate and cutlery so you don't have to clean what others left dirty before you... More

Where shall I begin with this review? The staff at this hostel feels like family to me, friends for life! The hostel is well managed, just enough amount of people for it to not feel empty, but not over crowded either. They have space in the rooms for more beds, but have chosen to go with quality instead of quantity,... More

The Witch's Hat is one of the finest backpackers I've ever stayed. Well organized and very clean. It might be a bit more expensive than other hostels, but it is well worth the money. I ended up staying here for about a month in both a dorm and double room. It's small and cozy with a nice outdoor bbq area.... More
