Such a nice place "hidden" in a quiet part so we could relax in the garden. But close to everything we needed. The staff gave good advice were to go and what to do and it was handy we could book in advance for 19 people. Hope to come back one day.

The place is big, incredibly clean, modern, stylish, with big comfy beds. I found the other guests are friendly and sociable but quiet and respect your sleep! There's a great atmosphere in the hostel, and as a solo traveller I... More

This was seriously the best hostel of my whole three-weeks journey I made this summer. I arrived to the hostel with another guy I had met on my previous stop without having made a booking but we were lucky enough there were still free beds for us. I stayed for one night, but then extended my stay to three and... More

Friendly, helpful staff. When I stayed there seemed to be groups of young teenagers and families staying at the hostel, which wasn't the atmosphere I was looking for, as a 22yr old solo traveller, but it was still a pleasant stay.

The room was very clean and cosy, and the... More
