Liked: Spectacular site with unbeatable view in most central location and value for money. Very quiet even close to highway. Nice people of all ages. No party location. Spaceous rooms with perfect electricity - have your own loading as well in the locker as close to your bed with own reading lights. Very well tought in plannig. Very friendly staff.

Disliked: Terrace could be open for sunrise, not only from 07.00am to 9.30pm. A bit disappointing that the WFi did not work at all. So many steps down to other WiFi places were to do.

Liked: You get what you pay for, and so while this hostel is more expensive it's clean, safe, new and, unlike some hostels, is not full of drunked partiers. Staff are nice and the location/view is great. Highly recommended.

Disliked: Internet is expensive.

Liked: Amazing location, you're even on top of an archaeological site! The whole hostels was super clean and well maintained. Our room was great, with a really nice private bathroom and lockers.

Disliked: You have to provide your own padlock for the lockers.
