“Wonderful stay”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on February 11, 2019

This hostel was everything I could wish for - clean, secure, friendly staff, beautiful decor. It is also very affordable with additions like free breakfast, TV room, board games etc. I highly...


“Alright hostel”

Rating: 3 Reviewed on January 04, 2019

It was alright due to the cheap price for one night and two beds. Although we recognised that some parts of the floor upstairs was broken and covered with mats. Probably won’t live here again...

Hi everyone. This is a great place to stay. It's the most reasonable and excellent price for a hostel. The staff are exceptional as well as the owner Ray. A big thank you to him and his employees...
