The only plus - friendly and helpful receptionists, who speak good english. Provided much useful and needed information, regarding the daily trips and so on.

DannyTeller, 19 Sep 2014 | Read review
“The hostel in general is quiet, and we chose the double room ensuite which also had a kitchenette, so I'd recommend this room in all aspects. However it is two single beds as opposed to a double bed, which might bother some people.”
