Have never done the hostel thing before, and this was a great first stay. Clean accommodation, super-helpful and friendly staff, great amenities and facilities, great location, all for a great price. Especially like that they know all the things that visitors are likely to need...More

Good value for money when talking about private room but way much basic than what is offer in other hotels (cleaniless was not the best, no decoration, really small). Plus, slightly out of town and not easy without a car.
