I like it but.. ”

I like the fact that the room is large enough and it is clean.
I understand that current pandemic and this hostel recommend no contact policy. But when I arrived at the hostel, no ones answered my phone call at all. This hostel prefer WhatsApp call.

Great stay!”

Everything is super clean and quite. Feels like home. Good if you wanna have a good rest and for long stays. You have laundry for free and that&#39;s a plus! Coffee and tea all day.
It&#39;s a bit far away from everything.
