    Great hostel and great staff. I just wished there were power outlets besides my bed. It's a great thing that they have lockers in the rooms. It's really near the city tourist center and you even have a wall climbing company inside the buildingMore

    This hostel was very good. Great location, friendly helpful staff. The kitchen is big and well stocked (just make sure you label your food...). Has a rock climbing wall and a cinema downstairs too. Felt very safe and secure too, would definitely recommend to backpackers!
