“Horrible”
Reviewed December 29, 2008

The worst hostel i ever stayed in. I must admit, we were travelling on a very low budget. But this place does not deserve the name hostel. The room was small, the bed old and if you sat on the toilet your feet were in the shower. Or should i say "shower", see for yourself in my pictures. This place needs renovation, but they don't want to invest money. Even though there are some positive things: The view from the balcony is nice, the location EXCELLENT and the owner was kinda friendly. Go only if you can't afford anything better.
