It has 4 bunk beds, with TV, hair dryer, toilet, etc. You get all kinds of amenities, which is amazing. They also provide breakfast (bread, coffee, tea, etc.). The owner, Eric, is also... More

The person running the hostel - Eric, was a true star, very helpful and welcoming, always trying to gather people from the hostel to experience the nightlife. The hostel itself was very homely and had a... More
