We only stayed 2 nights but would go back again. My daughter and I had dorm room 6 with 2 bunk beds. They especially opened up a new dorm room as I needed a bottom bunk bed (which are also very sturdy with comfy mattresses). The bathrooms are always clean and very well presented. You need to book is hostel...

Loved this place. Stayed 6 nights. Clean and spotless. Well equipped kitchen. Central. Staff very nice and helpful .. beautiful courtyard inside. The rooms are good, a bit dRk but that's because they are using solar power and are energy conscious. We had a downpour one of the nights and the room we were in got flooded, but the staff...

The hostel is in the city center, so you can reach everything by foot. Our twin room had even a table and a small wardrobe and the beds were very comfortable. The hostel is eco-friendly, since they warm the water with solar-energy and they turn off the power for the main lights of the rooms during the day (but no...

This is one of the cleanest hostel kitchens I've encountered, if under-supplied. The bathrooms were always crystal clean as well. Some rooms were too warm, but in general we enjoyed quiet sleeps and peace of mind as the door was expertly manned 24 hours a day. Negatives included a whole lot of cats just everywhere on the property and a...

The room was spacious, clean and the beds were comfortable. The shared bathrooms very numerous and cleaned regularly. So there were never any issues. The patio and the kitchen to use are very nice and overall the people staying at this place seem to be all very relaxed and quiet and the atmosphere was very familial and helpful.

A bit overpriced (quite overpriced for those arriving from Bolivia!), but this is a good choice. Room was clean, pretty, and had a huge bed. Bathrooms are spotless. Wifi only works in the common area, but is fast. Pro: There are kittens! One of their cats had five kittens and they're adorable. Con: The rooms have solar lighting that only...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hostel is very clean, with nice rooms and cool common areas with free wifi. Location is great, the main street is around the corner and there are two grocery stores next door. Staff is really nice and helpful. All travelers from Slovenia also get 10% discount since the owner is from Slovenia.

I enjoyed my stay here. Facilities were very well catered to the traveller with plenty of power points, very clean toilets and showers, and small lockable dormitories. The staff were friendly and it was set in a nice atmosphere. A small con is that wifi is only available in the courtyard.

“The wi-fi works better in the common area, around outside the kitchen. On the other side it is not as strong. So getting a room closer to the former could be a good idea.”
