Great staff, very accommodating, relaxed, quiet, clean. No vermin or old linen. Perfect location, basic cooking facilities. Bathrooms always clean and stocked with toilet paper and toiletries. Great little fruit stall next door open each day. We stayed for 3 nights and would happily have stayed longer.

A good hostel. Very good location and also beautiful location overlooking the river. Nice communal area upstairs and very sociable. The staff were quite helpful and spoke good English.
