This place had a really great unique vibe. Not like the fairly soulless corporate hostel chains, it had a retro design and unique charm to it. The twin room was comfortable, and more like a basic hotel room than a hostel room. There is a sink in the bedroom which is handy. Bathroom facilities were fine. There is a nice... More

I stayed here for a night in a private single. It's very comfortable and clean place and the owners are very helpful. The location is a bit far from town, but it's nice to have a bit of a walk.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. The host is so open hearted and cheerfull, good hostel at cheap rates. It's clean and comfy. Only thing I can think of is the low showerheads, but that's just a good opportunity for some squat practice, if you like me reach above the 180 cm.

My partner and I stayed here earlier in March for 2 nights and I think the new owner had only had it for about 2 weeks or so? Really nice, friendly guy though, he offered us a beer when we checked in! The rooms are simple, reasonably priced and clean. Towels and linens are provided, which is always a plus,... More
