I had a co-ed 4 sharing dorm room. It was very clean..my bed was comfy. We had all the facilities to make it feel like home,, The location is just a stones throw from town and the bus stop. Well worth it

I stayed in a spacious double room with shared facilities with... More

Good and cheap place to stay, near of the city center. You can go and buy some food at the supermarkets or have some food at the places in the city center. Very near to buy tickets for the attractions. Staff and kitchen really nice!

This hostel is great for those who don't want a party hostel - quiet rooms that are well maintained. I stayed in a twin room and the beds were comfy, warm and there was never a line to the bathroom.

I've been there over new years and got the very last bedroom ( a double bed room ) for my self , it was a little bit to expensive for me but it was very comfortable. Next time when I go there then I have to look for a cheaper bedroom ( earlier booking ).
