There's no enough words to describe this place. Salvo, one of the workers, told me before I checked in that if you check in here your life will change. He wasn't lying.

Supposed to be here for only 3 nights, but i stayed here 3 weeks! They got anything you would ask for, great atmosphere, friendly staff, a lot of facilities, close to the beach, city-centre and even things like PS4, Netflix, pool all for free!

A bit noisy at night, but safe and secure: each dorm had keypunch locks. A cheap place to stay with a great location - close to the main street/railway station. I arrived very late & had to call to gt let in - no worries!

Home sweet home. The OFS is the best Backpackers i've ever been. The week is full of events like soccer training, movie night in the cinema ( !! ), Ping pong / Billiard tournaments, cheap and really good Indian food. The atmosphere is awesome.
