    Pleasant rooms, lovely kitchen/ dining room area and excellent attentive staff. My friend and I stayed here while attending a weekend seminar locally. We are kosher and they were very helpful in letting us set up ourselves for the weekend

    Exceeded our expectations. Friendly staff and a good vibe. We will visit again. Overall it was a memorable experience. We loved the location - close to the Observatory hustle and bustle yet quiet and secure

    Everything fine. First class backpacker hostel (double rooms). Fast and easy to use WIFI. Special homemade Pizza-day. Cheap breakfast, but for free. Kind personal and super safe. Supermarket nereby. I will go there again next time.
