I stayed here 5 nights and my experience was all around very good! The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the owner. The hostel has free breakfast, a large backyard area, a pool and a pool table! Also the hostel is in a perfect location in the center of town next to all the good restaurants and bars. They offer...

We arrived randomly at the hostel on a Saturday afternoon, without looking it up. The entrance seemed clean and nice, the guy at the front desk was also nice, and the price was cheap, so we decided to stay without checking the rest of the hostel first. We stayed in an 8 room dorm - not very clean, very old,... More

Great café attached to hostel with great free breakfast. Pool and outdoor common area is nice! Ping pong table is fun. Nice upper balcony too. Great location. I do however wish that the receptionists were more helpful with reservations and plans, I didn't realize it at the time but I've been too many other hostels that were much more accommodating...

I'm a trooper, so i can stay in filthy hostels and still have a good time. This hostel was a bit on the dirty side, our room was full of bugs and seemed that the cleaning lady hasn't been doing her job very well, but for the price was not a problem for me. I do have to complain about... More

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the city as well as the hostel very much. The rooms were clean and the hostel is located very close to the centre. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Even after my stay, they took the trouble to send me my USB-stick I left at the hostel. Thanks again!

I booked a night here over Easter weekend and arrived at 1am to be told I would need to check out at 10am the next day as they had no room the next night (fair enough, my bad), David on reception had no suggestions of any other hostels I could look at, so I spent a couple of tiring hours... More
