Liked: The hostel is well located, very near the center of town, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, they even let us sleep on the couch when we arrived very early in the morning as check in time was not up yet, and booked all the excursions for us. The hostel is beautifully decorated and is one of the rare ones that does recycling! The wi-fi connection was good.

Disliked: It was a bit smelly when we first entered... but I didn't notice it anymore later.

Liked: some small problems on my first night were dealt with by the manager promptly and efficiently.

Disliked: if you have a room next to reception, you may endure some noise in the early hours which may keep you awake.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Liked: Its quite central and we were let in at 5am and allowed to sleep on the couch in reception

Disliked: Staff are generally unhelpful and only interested in partying and sleeping with the guests. The kitchen was filthy, as was the terrace area (cigarette butts etc), and the bunk beds look like they're going to fall apart at any second.

Liked: Really nothing - only the other travellers were very nice

Disliked: The rooms are loud if they are next to the street ore dark if they are not, the beds are very old and you have to put the sheets on your own. The bathrooms weren't clean and there were not enough of them for all the travellers. I got a confirmation for a female 3 bed female dorm, but after the first night they decided without informing or asking me to take all my gear and give me a 6 bed mixed dorm - bad surprise when Icame back in the evening!
