                8.2

                Very friendly staff and helpful when asked. Nice location, not far from station and old city, both 10 min walking. We had a really good deal and couldn't believe that we could even help ourselves to breakfast in the morning.

                We had a room right next to the stairs; when people come home at night not respecting others, yes it woke us up. The room and showers were acceptable for cleanliness but could be better.

                Bar inhouse, tours selection, great atmosphere!

                One of the better hostels we stayed at. The doubles where spacy and clean. Great bar and great staff. Perfect location. Can be a bit noisy, but I would absolutely recomend this hostel if you`r on a budget.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                I liked almost every thing. Realy frendly and helpfull staff. Great centre- close location. Hostel has it's own bar. For me its best hostel were I have been, and I'll try to visit it next year one more time.

                For me it was ideal, but there bar in hostel, may be some one against it?

              • Couple
                10.0

                The hostel is in a great location... just outside the Old Town (takes at most 5-10 minutes to walk to the main square). The owners are so lovely and are very helpful and love to have a drink with you at the hostel bar. Our room was very clean, big and spacious (we had a twin). We also saw the dorm rooms (with 10 beds), which were also very large. There are kitchen facilities and the bathrooms are always clean. Good continential breakfast is free for guests as well. We loved our stay here and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

                We don't have any negatives.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                THE male receptionist was very helpful. It was also very handy to the old town, and easy to find from the railway station

                It was very noisy - I did not realise they advertised themselves as party central
