"The rooms are all good. Its a old building with old doors so you can hear people walking and talking but its not a party hostel so for me it was not a problem. Thats normal when you stay in a hostel I think."

"Do not settle for what you are told. Always look around. There are better prices to be had, as was the case here at Hostel Colonial, which also has free bicycle use and is centrally located near the town square."
"We liked the bed size of the double rooms, in the dorms the beds are very small."
"Rooms 11-13 are the best, nr 4 is noisy"
