Highly recommended. Directions to the hostel were sent by email after booking and were really helpful. Excellent staff who can speak English and help with travel arrangements/booking activities. Great location near Green Lake. Delicious muesli for breakfast. Stayed in the female dorm room which met all requirements and had good hot showers (though the room was a little damp). Excellent...

The location was great, just a few moments walk from Green lake and about 10 mins walk from the University aeea with loads of bars, restaurants and cafes. The room (206) was clean, with a comfy bed and underfloor heating which was really welcome in...

We stayed in the 2 bed room with private bath, so I cannot speak to the other rooms or dorms. The place is small and off from the main roads, but is centrally located and accessible. Everything was clean, the staff were very helpful and friendly, most spoke decent English. Free drinking water from a dispenser to refill your bottles....

I thoroughly enjoyed my time staying at this hostel, the breakfast was great although I wish they still had a restaurant onsite (read my review regarding the new venue) as I'm sure it would have been better run by these people. The room was fantastic, clean towel EVERY day(!), an amazing shower and really comfortable wide bed with a degree...

Location is perfect, 5 minutes walk from the central lake of the city, near the old market and the shopping area. Rooms have different prices: we stayed in two different rooms at third and second floor: they were both good with spacious baths. Staff speaks a very good English and can help you with tickets or private vans. Good western...

If you are looking for friendly and English speaking service in a convenient location, it is the right place for you. I have been several times since 2014 and I always like to go back. I have been disappointed about the recent renovation because now the restaurant has been reduced to a small but cozy cafe and the pizza has...

The manager of this hostel is exceptional! She came to meet us from the bus from Dali and waited for more than an hour as our bus was delayed. The room was narrow with two single beds end to end but the beds were wide and comfortable. Breakfast was good. The hostel staff were friendly and helpful and the location...
