The ladies running the house are to date the best and honest hostel caretakers I've... More

The staff was absolutely excellent. I left my phone at another hostel and a woman working there went to the train station to pick it up for me! Very helpful and friendly. There's a nice kitchen downstairs and the place is close to the train station. 5/5.
