Each bed has their own lamp, power outlet and curtains for privacy. A cage to lock valuables is also provided, located under the beds. I...

excellent location in the old town. at almost any moment (in the afternoon) you'll meet some travelers who are up for some fun. only real down are the mosquitoes, but after enough beers (or a repellent) you're all good

I was travelling with my one friend and we had a twin private room (though we barely used it). The hostel was an absolute blast! An active common room and lots of activities organized by hostel. Great location, clean and like-minded other guests! 10/10

Enjoyed my stay at the Naughty Squirrel. The staff are amazing- so welcoming and accommodating. Happy to answer any questions and help with suggestions of places to eat and things to do and see. Rooms are comfortable. Toilets and showers maybe a bit dated and smelt quite damp but nothing to write home about. Had an awesome stay despite the...

Great cheap spot. Clean. One of the most comfortable beds I've slept in in months. All the staff at the desk are helpful and actually super hilarious. Wound up staying days longer than I meant to and I loved it. Fun activities at night where I met lots of other great travelers

Staff were very friendly and give you a welcome shot on arrival. Location is great, just a few mutes from the bus and train stations and within the old town.
