I don't understand the negative reviews.. This hostel is a perfect place to stay! The dorms were good, not too big, but enough space to put your backpack, and with a nice big window. The beds are good are well! The showers and toilets are perfect! They are perfectly clean and I saw them being cleaned every day (this does not happen in every hostel!!). I didn't use the kitchen so I can't say anything about that. The common rooms and balcony are nice. There were staying a lot of long-termers when I was there, which I didn;t really like, because it makes it harder to meet other travellers to hang out with. But I must say my (also long term) room mates were very friendly to me. The owners and staff are very friendly!!! They really make you feel at home! The hostel is located in a quiet neighbourhood, a bit out of town, but not too far, it's easy to walk there (about 5-10 minutes)
