I stayed here several days and I must say I really liked this place, the people who worked there and fellow travelers I met there. The common rooms were clean and pleasant. People were friendly and cooperative. It felt like home. Thursday nights a Tapas tasting night out was organized and on Saturday night there is a barbecue on the...

I liked everything about this hostel like atmosphere, staff, facilities, location, wifi but the private room was a bed in a converted bathroom (nicely done though) and hardly more value than a dorm bed except maybe for couples with urgent needs to make love. It's next to the smoking terrace so be prepared for the occasional fumes. The hostel is...

I stayed in a very small private room on the top floor of the hostel which was really a terrace and laundry area. The room was about 4 sq m with a double bed filling the entire space. I give this review 3 stars because the staff were friendly and helpful However, the room was way too small for one...

I LOVE Big Fish!! I volunteered here for a month and it was one of the best experiences ever. I'm sure I annoyed Marton (owner) a bit, and I'm sorry! But thanks for letting me hang around ;) Marton and the rest of the staff always had great things organized for guests and it was a very communal environment, making...

We initially booked a couple of nights here and ended up staying 2 weeks. It's located just metres away from the beach and also close proximity to bars/food. The staff are really friendly and it's nice and chilled during the day if you want to work (fast wifi) and then social at night if you're wanting to check out the...

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff was extremely friendly and made you feel like a friend, not just a guest. If I needed anything, they were quick to help me, and they even set up a small bike tour to Old Town, which was wonderful! The bathrooms were cleaned every morning, and the beds were comfortable....
