    Very nice and calm atmosphere. Not noisy, nice swimming pool. 1 bathroom to share per bedroom. Expected worse after reading the reviews. Reception is ok. No fake bla bla like the other hostels. Chill, well located. Didn't use the kitchen tho.

    Lazy duck is a basic but nice hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and have a separate bathroom. The garden is really nice with a pool and many places to meet the other guests.
