Would advise being on main site for... More

Stayed in a 4 bed dorm with my fiance. Really good location with loads of cafés and restaurants close by, extremely clean with comfortable beds. Great value compared to other hostels, I would highly recommend to other travellers.

With their help I was able to experience much more of the colour and life this town has to offer. The house itself is a beautifully decorated very well maintained old style home... More

The owner is a nice chap and helpful when it comes to draw a walking tour on a map, location is good also, but toilet and room is soo dirty, I haven't seen such a mess on my travels to Bolivia, Peru......

The space is limited due to it's small size, but it adds to the homey environment, and there are still... More
