I have stayed at many hostels but this one was the best I have ever seen. Personalized service above and beyond any 5 star hotel. Clean, safe, economical, great location, what more could you want. Tours they arranged were perfect. Great job by everyone working there.

Clean and modern hostel with professional and friendly owner/staff!! Can set you up with tours and collect you from airport or train station. Not pushy at all. Most personal experience at a hostel I've ever had. Spoiled for the rest of my trip! Save your energy and money and stay here!!
