“Bit far from the centre but otherwise a great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The hostel is about 40min walk from the train station and 20min from the centre. Facilities are great, though, kitchen was big anc clean. Stayed in 5-bed dorm, bathroom and kitchen were shared with one other room. Supermarket right accross the street. Only minor problem was that the receptionist was almost never around and some girls actually had to call him in the morning to come and let them pay as they were leaving (!). Would stay again, besides the location the place had everything we needed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This hostel is in a great location if you have a car. It is close to the city centre (15 minutes walk) and you can avoid driving through the centre to get to/from the highway network. There is limited parking on site, although the are the hostel is located in is very quiet and residential so on street parking did not seem to be a problem. There is a small supermarket and bar across the road from the hostel. Each room has a kitchen (with sink, freezer, fridge, microwave, hob and oven) and bathroom (shared with another dorm) so self catering is possible. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were always clean and comfortable. The rooms have huge windows to cool down in summer and large shades for privacy. The only issue was that our door lock was broken and the lockers in the rooms had no keys or padlocks (they were essentially just cupboards) so we could not keep any valuables in the room. If this issue is sorted out then this hostel would be perfect!

We were in a double room on the ground floor. Kitchen next door to us and the small common bathroom. Clean quiet place. There is air conditioning! 20 - 25 minutes walk to the city center. Bus stop (1) at the hostel one minute away and with just a few minutes from the city center! Shops and supermarkets in the area. We recommend! Hostel and all that.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

We were in a double room, which, unlike most places we've visited in Europe actually had a double bed rather than 2 singles. We had a bathroom shared with one other room (shower was hot but a push button that needed pushing in a little too often!) and a kitchen also shared with the other room. Stove, fridge, microwave and a sink. The a/c worked well and was most welcome in the August heat. Friendly and helpful staff. A pleasant surprise as we booked last minute without knowing much about it. Some free parking was handy and a small supermarket right across the road.
