The location is just perfect, everything is very near, the area provides all kinds of entartainment. It felt like we were staying with old friends rather then in a hostel, the stuff is very helpful, we appreciated tips about where to go and what to see. Highly recommended!

Very good, very clean, and also very nice beds. We had some good nights there and we enjoyed it to the fullest. It had what we needed, and there were social activities almost every day. We loved it here - cheap and also very nice.

Very good price... More

We are a couple in out late twenties, fairly well travelled who are happy to 'rough it'. We booked a 'private, double, en-suite' room. The room actually turned out to be a small studio apartment just opposite from the hostel itself. It was small but perfectly formed with everything we needed and more. For me a clean room with a...
