We arrived at 1am sat morning after a flight from London, I had booked weeks in advance in hostel world and sent an email to check that there would be someone to let us in when we arrived. It was at that point we were told that our beds where not ready until the following day due to not realising...

This place offers a simple stay, but in a nice environment. The owner is really nice and you feel immediately at home! Rooms are clean, dorms are for 8 persons. Only the kitchen and tv-zone are rather small, not enough space to cook with more than two people. Location is perfect, really close to the center!

We had a great time in freeborn hostel. The owner is always there, chatting with people and making sure everyone is ok. Very nice guy, and his mom too! Very cool vibe and nice decoration. We slept well. The only downside is you need to pay for a towel (i would prefer to pay a euro more for the bed...

Booked to stay in September. Needed to add an extra night however the main hostel was full so I was moved to a room in the center of town. The room was fine, clean and quiet. Had kitchen facilities. However being a fragment it was quite quiet, it didn't have the atmosphere of the main hostel. The location was great...

Really nice hostel in a wonderful area, walking distance to the main square and anything you need! Lovely owner and his mother is nice too. Nice residential building, so it's quiet at night and the rooms are nice and homely. Only downside is it was very hot in our room in Summer, but for the price, aircon wasn't expected.

Good location with potential to be a fantastic hostel. The owner of the hostel rents the building so has added multiple bathrooms in the courtyard making the facility:guest ratio high. Decently clean and organized. Nice little court yard that is great for hanging out with other guests, However not past 9pm really as the neighbours complain. Raul the owner is...

Firstly I will start with the location, it is on a quiet street but walking to the centre of the city takes less than 5 minutes. The showers are great, the beds are comfy and we love have the privacy of curtains when you sleep. There is a well equipped kitchen for cooking anything you like. The outside area with...

This is what a nice cozy hostel can be for me. Just stayed in Freeborn hostel for a night, but immediately I was treated like a friend. The guy owning the place (Raul) is super gentle and friendly, will give you hundreds of tips and maybe challenging you at ping pong. The first thing you see when you enter the...
