We had a great time in this hostel. Overall more than expected. The hostel was clean, good location (for 2 friends on vacation) and the room was big enough. We felt very welcome and would definitely recommend this hostel.

Nice location near the busy Lower Main Road with a lot of restaurants and shops. We enjoyed the ambiance and available facilities. Nice staff, who are always willing to help. Point of improvement: often noisy guests in the night and early in the morning.
