The location of this hostel is perfect - sea views from some rooms! The staff were amazing and did everything they could to make me feel welcome and have a good time (even joining us a few times!). Highly recommend!

Good: location, clean, friendly staff Bad: booked 4 beds for 2 nights but they overbooked themselves so they gave us 2 beds in the common room for 4 of us. The owner said it was private but there was also another person in the room. We mentioned our frustration the next day and they then gave us a 50% "discount"... More

This is a very nice hostel in a very central location! So easy to find just walk towards the sea plane stop by the sea. Once inside after conquering the stairs you get to a very lovely rooftop terrace which sells beer the same price as at the supermarket! Our stay was decent there was no noise to wake us... More

Pros: Location is great at Old Town right by the Forum. Efficient staff who handled a busy check in time smoothly. Good price. Knowledgeable staff who helped us with local and long distance busses. Lots of group areas for people to hang out. Very clean. Cons: ????

The hostel arranged various beach transfers for good prices, which was great. Unfortunately there were no big lockers for the backpacks, still they had smaller ones for your wallet and other small objects only. The bunk beds we had felt quite unstable unfortunately. We felt every movement of the other person..

This hostel was very well located in the center of town, and was very clean. There was lots of restaurants and shops within a 2 min walk and it was also just next to the port with a lovely view. It had a small kitchen where you could cook, and a lovely outdoor terrace with a bar, although you couldnt... More

Not a bad stay! The hostel is very very centrally located and right on the water, which makes for some really nice sunsets. Its about a 15 minute walk to the bus station. The website said breakfast was provided but it wasn't, nor is there free laundry services- 2 of the reasons we booked here. The kitchen was smaller than... More

Really lovely hostel with sea views, clean bathrooms and rooms, airey rooms, good wifi and helpful staff (who inform you of local buses, beaches and landmarks). I'd definitely return, however I did feel too 'mothered' - the hostel virtually shuts down at 11, dead silence is enforced from 12-8am and staff even called in during the night to close the... More

This hostel is beautifully located in terms of the city, the train station and the airport. The hostel itself is well equipped, very clean with spacious rooms. However if its atmosphere you're looking for, this is not the place to be. The hostel has strict rules on noise limits after 11pm which to me was unnecessarily early.
