Comfy rooms, lots of little nooks to sit and read or trip plan, a big backyard with grass and rabbits, hammocks and loungers. Pool table, art everywhere, great fresh breakfast with bread, fruit, granola, eggs, coffee. Lots of nice helpful people, free walking tours. A pleasure to stay here!

We got in very late (1:30am) due to a delayed flight, but the staff still accommodated us by giving us some bottled water and showing us right to our room without checking in that night. We had booked a private room with shared bath, but the first night we arrived it was not available and only a private with private...

Amazing place, with a beautiful sunny garden for reading and relax....staff are the best, they want you to always feel at home, they´re very helpful and Ornelia the owner prepares a tasty breakfast. The place is very quiet, it's a beautiful old building, good for the price and very close to the center. I have to say they also have...

We loved staying here. The place has a cool garden, pool table, free coffee, great breakfast and much more. Only one minor remark: the guest kitchen could be slightly better equipped (we had to borrow heavily from the staff kitchen to cook our meal). Definitely recommend this place!

Stayed in 2 different private rooms which were really spacious and very clean. Hostel has good friendly vibe and decent common area with a billiard and foosball tables. The showers weren't that great in either room but had decently warm water. Good wifi and the $3.50 breakfast was worth it. We would stay here again.
