Sylvain Morillon

15 April 2010 Sylvain would recommend this property

Liked: One of the best hostels we've stayed at. It really is more like a hotel, but at hostel price and with a really nice kitchen and sitting area on each floor. The beds and linens were nice, nice clean bathrooms, great kitchens. Be sure to ask for a room off the road if you are bothered by noise, as the noise from the road is really bad. The location is okay, but it is about 5 minutes further than we ever felt like walking at the end of the day! In all we had a good stay here, ended up staying 2 days longer than planned even.

Disliked: Sylvain left no negative feedback.

04 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location was very nice and it was very easy to find. Do not take a taxi. Ask someone at the train station which direction to go and you will be there in ten minutes. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and cozy. The kitchen was clean and had everything you needed. There was no curfew and the place was very secure. I would recommend this hostel to anyone who doesn't mind walking at least 10-20 minutes to get to tourist sites.

Liked: it was very nice, and we got a nice room with a little balcony, tv and heating by our selves for dorm prices. if the hostel was full the kitchen could get crowded, but it was very quiet while we were there. no internet (there is wifi) and no laundry is inconvenient, but neither are far away.

Ariel Schapiro

15 March 2010 Ariel would recommend this property

Liked: Very clean, not expensive and very good rooms.There is nobody during nights so if you need anything you have to manage yourself. One night the light went out and it was almost impossible to cook but afterwards the manager gave us a discount because of that, so they understood the problem and tried to compensate. Good people.

Liked: It was really nice and clean. I felt like I was staying in a hotel with the cost of a really cheap hostel. The location isn´t great, but nothing is more than a 15-20 minute walk, probably even less if you don´t get lost.

Liked: Overall this is very good, good aircon, good wifi (even in the room), new and contemporary design. The only thing is a bit of walk. Ask the staff to recommend some Italian restaurant, good price and quite nice. Good washing machine, though it is not ensuite but the bath room is big and good. Good kitchen also, not over crowded, really good place to stay.
