Nice familiar and casual place. The staff is amazing and friendly and will help you on whatever you need :) Is nicely located, all what you need is just 5 to 10 minutes walking. The beds are comfortable and all the guests are friendly and easy to talk to! Will come back for sure.

Lovely hostel in a good location. The beds were the best hostel beds I have had so far and the rooms were really spacious. The staff were just great ! A couple of kiwis. They were homely and welcoming from the moment you pressed that doorbell. Home made bread for breakfast and eggs ! Just great. The only thing I... More

I spent a night here last spring. It was comfortable, warm at night, and kept my belongings safe. I didn't really spend much time there or interact with others so I can't speak to that, but it got the job done.

This hostel has a high potential to become a great place. It needs to care the details. We booked a room with 4 beds and we found 5 in he place which we did not like it especially because we paid for a 4-bed-room. Breakfast is nice and quiet complete. Location and the host (Mariano) is the best thing this... More

Really nice, clean and friendly Hostel. The rooms and beds are really cozy and the people they host it are very friendly and open. They joined me once to go to a pub, really fun! The breakfast is delicious.

Staff were very friendly and welcoming - Mariano is a great host. It was like a home from home, very relaxing visit. On the down side, there only seems to be one shower in the hostel, although the second bathroom has a bath.

Friendly staff, particularly Mariano. A quiet neighborhood, comfortable bed, good night’s sleep each night. Very homey feel to this place. Nice breakfast. Lounges on ground floor and near back garden area. Small ensuite programmable-lock lockers. A minor need for improvement: my earlier reservation indicated I could pay for my room with a credit card. But I was informed that only... More
