          I hate to leave negative feedback but I feel this hostel really needs to improve. It advertises a kitchen- yet the fridge is no bigger then a 40cm x 40cm box which is an inadequate amount of space to allow each traveller to store food....More

          Perfect hostel for young people - almost not recognizable that this was a prison once; directly located at an alternative village and not far from the city centre. If you're a couple, ask for the room with the round bunk bed!

          Interesting to stay in a military prison especially one that has been treated so sensitively and with thoughts of weary travellers in mind. The rooms are comfortable enough and quirky. Common areas well used and the food provided of good quality. Prices very reasonable. Take...More
