The staff is awesome, clean facilities and super comfy beds. Staying here almost feels like being at home, all cooking equipment is provided, there are laundry facilities and free wifi. Outside the hostel is a bus taking you directly into town within 15 minutes. I just loved staying here. Highly recommendable!
