Thank for your kind words from all of us --including Jax, Maya and Fritz! We miss you already, and can't wait for you to come back! --and we're really glad you liked our brand new mattresses--

Clean and plentiful showers/ sinks. Ok option in a place with not really many good options for cheap accommodation. Mattresses are so so so bad, it’s not good to allow people to sleep on them really... still, I guess I survived. Hosts are nice.

Perfect size of a hostel, get in touch with other backpackers easily in the nice garden with hammocks. Cheap water. Unfortunately, my mattress was very uncomfortable in the dorm, but the rest was perfect. Perfect place to chill. Clean bathrooms!
