We loved this place and would have stayed longer if we had time. Friday night was pizza night where you got a free beer with a pizza, Sunday night they have movie night and Monday - Wednesday they offer free dinner if you join the Facebook event. Besides these great things, they have a big open social space with a...

We arrived and found out they had overbooked triple rooms, but we were promptly offered free night in the dorm rooms. Great hospitality and service, free dinners twice a week, good food available for purchase, friendly guests, free billards/books/movies perfect location near hotsprings and close to town center.

I stayed at this hostel in februari 2017. I really liked the vibe of this hostel! The common room is cosy and is a good place to meet new people. The room was fine with private bathroom (hot shower!). I would recommend this hostel to everyone.

The hostel itself was very cosy and is a good place to chill for a few days. Anna, the receptionist, was very nice and really helpful - not just with organizing and informing us about trips we could do, also she did sent me all my pictures from my memory card i forgot at that place - and that was...

You are close to everything, but still a bit outside and it's quite in the evenings. Just the "noise" from the close bye waterfall! It's a good hangout area where you can meet other backpackers, read up on the computers or get recommendations bye the friendly staff! They also serve dinner that's included on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays!!

We stayed for three nights. Our room was nice with a comfy bed. In our 4 month of travel we never had such unfriendly, not helpful and rude staff. It wasn't just one person. It were everyone except the volunteers. So every single local women who work there. The volunteers were quite nice but haven't had really a clue what's...

Took an hour to check us in. Unfriendly staff, not many hot water showers, spaghetti bolognese which was our free meal on our first night was awful. "Free breakfast" was awful also, only jam and a croissant. Cool vibe and they have a pool table but i would never stay here again

We stayed here with a couple of friends, and really enjoyed it. The hostel is a bit outside of the town (which is tiny so still only a 5 minute walk from the main square) so normally it would be quiet at night. However, when we were here there seemed to be a neighbourhood party going on so music was...

Absolutely enjoyed my stay here! the place has everything you would expect from a good hostel: spacious clean rooms, really big comfy beds, hot strong showers, big common area with a pool table and a TV, a little garden with hammocks and a stunning view of the mountains. Breakfast is included, the food in general is tasty, drinks are at...
