I stayed at the ITH Adventure hostel for 6 days during May 2015. The place is well kept, nice, cozy and the staff is really friendly. Their rates include breakfast and dinner (you have to sign up for dinner until 5PM) making the stay really worth the price! On top the staff is organizing daily activities like travels to Mexico,...

I have stayed here a number of times now. The place is clean, bright, and cheery. While it is mostly young people (as such hostels often are), I have always felt comfortable staying there (I'm about 40). This is probably the best hostel I have every stayed in. I usually stay in one of the shared rooms. Other guests are... More

Everything about this hostel was amazing! Between the positive atmosphere, free meals, planned activities, clean facilities, and great staff, there was no room for error. Although I was only there for two nights and didn't partake in any of the festivities, you can see how involved the staff is in assisting its guests and really enjoy their jobs. Not to... More

I absolutely loved this hostel. I would go back in a heart beat. The bungalows were adorable and comfortable - very clean and safe, too. We even left all of our luggage out in the open, it was such a safe atmosphere, we knew everything would be kept safe. We met awesome people at the hostel and became very good... More

A 2 story Victorian house built around 1936 which has been converted into a “Hostel” House. Painted white with a rich burgundy trim that fits the character that awaits the traveler as soon as the cross the threshold of this most charming place. Entering the “House’ you first witness the staircase on the left that is lavishly painted with greetings... More

This was a nice hostel. No negative aspect to my stay there. Was able to come in late. They also offered free dinner and breakfast. It was very clean. The people were friendly. A good place to crash for a night.
