I had stayed at another hostel for the first few nights as this one was booked. It was a relief to be able to eventually stay here. The staff spoke fluent English, there was a wealth of information and tour offerings pinned to the wall, plenty of other travelers to chat to and join on daytrips and a few desktop...

Where should I start, I had the most warm welcome in the hostel. People in the hostel are very friendly and the atmosphere as a whole is great. I had a car trouble right after I arrived at the hostel, and if it wasn't for Robert I would be in big trouble. He helped me to find the parts I...

Friendly and helpful staff(including Zara, the hostel dog :) ), good atmosphere and decoration. Our room was tidy and comfortable, there was only one toilet per floor, but several downstairs. Welcome drinks were very nice, however the breakfast was quite poor, just cereals and coffee. About 10mins walk from the city centre, excellent value for money.

This is one of the best hostels which I have stayed so far and it is well-worth your money. I find it unbelievable when I was told that I can have free breakfast, free drinks and free towel. Room is large and clean. There are places for you to relax and chill out. Staffs are also warm and helpful. I...

Very nice hostel, with free drinks every day. Hostel was very clean. The garden was a good place to chill out in and escape the heat. Breakfast was not impressive but there is a supermarket around the corner. The location is good, close to the old town.

As soon as I came through the hostels doors, I felt very welcomed. I was tired from such a long journey from Australia and to have staff that were so friendly they got me situated to my room right away, asked me if I needed any water and gave me a free drink from the fridge filled with an assortment...

This hostel is great. The workers at the hostel were extremely nice and helpful. Plus you even get a free drink for every day that you stay! I went on the three castle tour and had a great time. The only downside I can think of is that it's doesn't have the best location but it's only like 10 minutes...

This hostel is the best! It is close to everything but still maintains a level of peace and quiet. The staff are amazing and actually will go out of their way to help you. They give very clear directions to locations, etc. The kitchen has nice facilities should you choose to cook, and everything is clean. It is an easy...
