"It's a very pretty hostel, the patio is very nice and the balcony as well, there are enough chairs to just hang around if you want. The place is clean! The showers are big and I never had to wait to take a shower. There…"

Cassandra Hearn

23 October 2009 Cassandra would recommend this property

Liked: There are no locks on the doors for the women's dorm (there are storage lockers in the rooms). At first, I was nervous about this, but once I settled in, I learned how quiet and peaceful it is there. Myself and my stuff were not in any kind of danger at all. I really enjoyed this hostel due to the tranquility.

Jayne Olschak

15 August 2009 Jayne would recommend this property

Liked: A lovely building in a charming area of town. When you first enter the hostel it feels more like a hotel, as you are confronted by a professional looking reception desk and a courtyard with modernist furnishings. The building itself retains many of its original features, including windows on the first floor that overlook the church next door, which I was told was used by the nuns (who weren't allowed to leave the building) to take part in the mass. There is also a seperate room that houses the tourist information area, where you can get lots of advice on the surrounding area and on the many and varied excursions that the hostel has to offer.The hostel is in the extremely charming old quarter of town, with winding streets to explore, but is very close to the main shopping street that leads to the train station.The rooms are small and basic, but clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. As this feels more hotel-like, there doesn't feel like that sense of cameraderie between travellers that you may get at other hostels. If you want more privacy though, this is an excellent hostel. Most dorms have only 4 beds in them.

Disliked: Jayne left no negative feedback.

Liked: be warned, they only seem to clean the bathrooms every two days if you are staying in the dorms and this also means they don't always have enough toilet paper! bring your own if you dont want to run out (or nick of with the breakfast napkins :D ) for the rest its a great location and has a good vibe
