​Customer Reviews

Very sweet staff, very helpful. The owner is offering good prices on driving as a guide/taxi and he is very nice!

Welcoming staff, very friendly, and will be helpful with any questions. Atmosphere is great, amazing vibes! many cozy areas to chill around and meet friends. Nice roof top for barbecue and drinking at evenings. There is a big supermarket just across the street and many restaurants just by a minute walking. Definitely will be back.

Great hostel which is both placed close to the beach, city center and bus station. Great and considered staff, who made sure that we were comfortable at all times. We got to use their washing machine for a small fee and they also served both tea and crackers when we were sick. I definitely recommend this place!
