Liked: This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is very well located close to the main square, so you'll always find a place to go out. The tours offered are on good value. I originally planed to just stay for 1 night and ended up there for a week.

Liked: Excellent hostel with friendly staff. Only a short walk to the main square and, even at night, I felt safe walking back alone. The hostel has great security in a gated community and lockers in the dorms.
