Liva was in the reception when we arrived; offered a drink and said that all was okay with the bookings. A fewinutes later we got our cards and then we went to our room. One king-sized bed and a...

Each bed has their own lamp, power outlet and curtains for privacy. A cage to lock valuables is also provided, located under the beds. I... More

I've had a great time, the staff of the hostel are great. Especially Liva, Piers and Artis. Really cool, empathic and easy going people. The pubcawls are really enjoyable, and last but not least; the rooms are quiet and well arranged!

excellent location in the old town. at almost any moment (in the afternoon) you'll meet some travelers who are up for some fun. only real down are the mosquitoes, but after enough beers (or a repellent) you're all good

I was travelling with my one friend and we had a twin private room (though we barely used it). The hostel was an absolute blast! An active common room and lots of activities organized by hostel. Great location, clean and like-minded other guests! 10/10

Rooms are comfortable. Toilets and showers maybe a bit dated and smelt quite damp but nothing to write home about. Had an awesome stay despite the... More

Great cheap spot. Clean. One of the most comfortable beds I've slept in in months. All the staff at the desk are helpful and actually super hilarious. Wound up staying days longer than I meant to and I loved it. Fun activities at night where I met lots of other great travelers

This is a hostel like you want 'em: very friendly staff that are always willing to help, great price, great location, clean toilets and showers, sockets and a light above each bed, they organize pub crawls, they have their own bar with happy hour... I could go on and on. Except for sounds coming from the street it's pretty quiet... More
