Central place
Placed in old quarter. You can reach everything without a bike. Nice big double-bed-bunk-beds. But. Worst case: 6 people dorm with 12 people , if everybody sharing the bed. Staff is really helpful and nice. Good place to stay.

Nice stay, breakfast and staff
I really enjoyed the stay in this hostel, I moved from other hostel to get here so I really noticed the change for something better. The breakfast (banana pancakes) was so good, the staff is always willing to give a really good service, the room were I was staying was really nice (3 bunk beads) and they cleaned it everyday and change the towels. They also have a special place to save your luggage after the check out and also some shower availables.
