    Stayed one night in the dorm room with my girlfriend before moving on. Beds were comfortable, staff were incredible and helpful. Had no worries about our safety or safety of our stuff. All in all an amazing environment with friendly people

    We couldn't ask for more than that. Fantastic, especially the compliments on our staff. Thank you so much. We hope to see you back at some point.

    The place is really well situated near a busy Street. Keys and vacca matta is literally 2 min walk away. The hostel was busy enough and good value for money. The bathroom facilities can do with some work though.

    Thanks for your review. Lots of positive there. Love the good value for money part. We think so also. Will have a closer look at the negative points. Hope to see you back again soon.
