Me and my boyfriend chose this place based on rating on HostelWorld and the photos provided. It proved to be a success as on our arrival we were stunned by the large double room with a closet, the clean home-style bathroom and a groovy kitchen/common room. But the best was the staff. Kata, the manager is the nicest, warmest and coolest person that makes everyone feel at home and encourages people to talk to each other. All the staff, Rieka, Judith and Peter were characters and very caring, personable hosts (I'm sorry if i've misspelled the names!!!!).
My boyfriend had a birthday during out stay and the staff girls went out of their way to buy a decent size cake and 32 candles to celebrate it! How cool is that!!! :)
The other guests were very cool and we had fun together in and outside of the hostel. Our one week stay seemed to pass way too fast and we were very sad to leave the Big Fish but we promise to come back! :)
