The location was awesome, right in the centre of the city. Free parking along the streets too. The hostel was however a little dated with its furnishing and decor. There was also no hot water in one of the shower rooms.

The perfect place to stay for a week if you are on a budget. Great friendly staff and homely atmosphere. Yes the kitchen is small, but that brings you closer to other travellers and you will make great new friendships here! Good wifi as well!

over all i like the place and services are good. i recommend my friends to stay here as i like, beautiful garden and awesome people. Self-service laundry. Friendly staff who didn't complain when we locked ourselves out at night and they helped us to unlock the door for us. Backpackers mix easily here.

That wasn't a good experience. The room was really cold, no heater, just one thin blanket. The sheets was dirty and the carpet as well. When we took a shower, the water was suddenly freezing so we had to go outside of the shower to unplug and replug a wire to get hot water back. Also, the wifi was not... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights and simply loved it. It is so clean. Sona, the manager is an awesome lady and a gracious host, amazing hospitality and always happy to help.

Its a very nice and quiet hostel cause it is outside the city centre but close enough to it ( 10min walk) You have free unlimited WiFi which works really good all the time. The whole hostel is very clean. The staff is really friendly and helpful and helps immediately if you have any problems. I felt very welcome here... More
