When I first arrived I thought I was in the wrong place as it was far too grand to be a hostel. This continued through out my stay. Which says everything about the value and quality of this establishment.

It's a nice and clean new hostel, that offers good value for money. The breakfast is quite nice for the price you pay. It's located nicely, it's about a 15 minute walk to the town center.
