          This hostel is like staying at a lovely friend's house! Wonderful welcome from the owner. Clean, comfortable room with standards well above a usual hostel. Fantastic value for money. Tea and coffee provided. Nice bathrooms. Great, relaxed environment. Highly recommended!

          Uhm it is a quiet long walk. Takes you probably 20min by walking... But I'd say it is worth it. You can try to ask them to pick you up, but I think they don't do it normaly.
