The hostel is located central. We stayed in a private ensuite room number 5 with TV, free wifi, kitchen, free coffee. Lovely cat Pepper. They supported a raft tour, nice terace on the roof. Free parking.

We called and reserved a private room for two people. Got to the hostel, and they did not have our room any more. That's not cool. Instead they offered us a dorm room for the night.

I am very sorry to hear that. Our private rooms have been booked for weeks ahead so there must have been a misunderstanding on our side and I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you.

And you get the best hostal with goodlooking and friendly staff! 10 min. from the bus station and you enter a quiet and very clean place. Three are 6 rooms with private or shared bathroom, cleaned daily, a communal kitchen with...

A very comfortable hostel, with all the necessary services in perfect condition, very nice, I recommend it. The back area is perfect for relaxing in a chair or rocking chair on the grass, helps you forget you're in the middle of the city

This was the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Wonderful service from all the staff especially the owner, Lisette who was able to help us with whatever we needed. Very comfortable, pristinely clean and well appointed rooms. The whole place has a lovely energy and we felt very much at home.

Having not stayed in a backpacker hostel in 10 years, I was not excited about sharing a dormitory with others, but having not made a reservation, this was my only option. The experience could not have been a better opportunity to center myself and prepare mentally for the return to the airport and what lies beyond. Highly recommended.
