“Nice atmosphere but not that nice sleep”

Rating: 3 Reviewed on April 13, 2018

The hostel was nice and in a good shape overall, atmosphere and staff were great. But really the no shoes policy should only apply the dorms. Also the floors make a really loud sound when you walk on...


“Safe what?”

Rating: 1 Reviewed on March 13, 2018

I’m not sure how to feel about this place. Staff is nice and friendly but that’s their only good point in my opinion. They have a no shoes policy which would be great if they ever cleaned the floor...


“Cozy small hostel. In a good location”

Rating: 4 Reviewed on December 17, 2017

Stayed here for only one night, but I really liked the place atmosphere. The hostel is pretty small but thats exactly why I liked it. The staff is very welcoming, there is always activities...
