Cons: He has too many work x'ers with no customer service skills, so don't expect the Hilton. It's cold in the winter, but nicer in the summer I'm sure. The city needs to fix up the area up it for visitors, if you ask me. Cons: The girls go upstairs, the men have the cozier rooms, especially the workers, when...

It's my third time staying here and it just keeps getting better! It is located in an older area of the city. The hostel itself is an older house but very clean and comfortable. The owner makes sure that you are comfortable there and have everything you need.

We're very sorry for your experience. It's not typical that we would not provide soap, hand, and bath towels in the private rooms, so not normally necessary to ask. Please accept our apology. I hope we can be of service in the future. Sincerely, Mac Owner

The title says it all. I enjoyed this place very much. Breakfast is included and the price is quite reasonable! I had a single room in a the other house (not the main one) which is around a 10 minutes walk from the main house where you have breakfast. In my house, there was a beautiful little garden. Lots of...
