Liked: The room was great and the location was amazing! Hostel was located right into the city square.

Disliked: There wasn't any common rooms, so we couldn't make dinners. In the other dorm (luckily we weren't there) were many over middaged guys who just steared and didn't speak any english.. It wasn't very comfortable. The curtains would be great to get some privacy!

Liked: Good location. Right in the center of the tourist area. clean. nice showers. helpful staff explaining the area. Safe area. Would recommend to others.

Disliked: We had our private washroom. But it was outside our room. And like many of teh places in europe we stayed in, there is no shower curtains. So you will flood the toilet.

Liked: I've been traveling the world for over a year now, and I can say that Angie is one of the most nice and helpful hostel managers I have ever met. She made sure everything was fine, and would follow up with any questions I had about the area. She is quick to smile and make friends, and I just wish all hostel owners were so cool.

Liked: The location couldn't be more perfect! Right on the centre square! The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. Also the owners are extremely helpful and give you loads of info about how to get to the surrounding towns.

Disliked: It can be slightly hard to find - the directions are slightly vague. It would benefit from a common room or kitchen (but apparently these will come eventually)

01 February 2010 paul would recommend this property

Liked: Great location and although the staff were friendly they didn't really put themselves out - wasn't given YHA discount when I noticed it as "would've messed up their billing system" so if you have it send them an email as soon as you book. Also there was a coffee machine in the room with filters but no coffee and nothing to drink from!!

Disliked: paul left no negative feedback.
