I booked for one night and I enjoyed so much the homely atmosphere that the staff created there that I ended up staying for four nights. All of the staff I found to be so open, honest and fun to be around. They all could not have been more helpful. The dorm room,kitchen,seating area and shower room were adequate to my needs as a sole traveler on a budget and they were kept clean daily. I had such a beautiful experience hanging out with some of the staff there that we went on trips around the city and I have to say honestly that I felt like we were old friends.
"When you come with an open heart you most certainly will be received with an open heart."
It is the people that make a place special and I am already planning my next trip back.
