A hostel to recommend, very helpful staff at the reception. They organized a lot for us, worked out perfectly. Clean and fair prize. Only 5 minutes to the next supermarket. Breakfast included, Toast, Marmelade and Coffee + Tea. Not much but better than other hostels.

I stayed here for a few nights in April and it was a pleasant hostel. The dorms were only 4 people per dorm with a shared bathroom. They were all very warm rooms, which is good since you're so far south. The staff was all helpful with anything you needed and the hostel was only a short walk from the... More

I stayed in a dorm and apart from unfriendly staff which kept me waiting half an hour before I could check in it's bad value for the money. It's expensive and the beds are almost falling apart, furthermore it's noisy. The breakfast which is included is really poor. If you're just looking for a affordable place to sleep there are... More

We stayed in a 4 person dorm room. They are clean, relatively big and with lockers inside the room. The kitchen area is big enough for large groups to cook and eat together. The breakfast is a bit disappointing, so was the WiFi connection.

The rooms in this hostel are as good as any 3 star hotel but a fraction of the price. The breakfast was good and the staff, especially Noa (?) fantastic. She was so helpful in sorting out a trip for us. We loved our stay here and can highly recommend it

Really good with nice and helpful staff.The dorms room includes a shower and toilet which is really nice. Breakfast is a bit small even when you upgrade, should be better for their price. Would go there again for sure.

This is a rather impersonal place, more like a youth hostel than like a hotel. Small breakfast buffet. The hostel is easy to find only walking distance to the downtown. The hostel offers a range of services for visiting and enjoying the stay.
