This was because the absolute gent of an owner was out buying the complimentary peanut butter and jam for us as he knew 5 young travelers were about to arrive for a few days and he wanted us to be happy. To...

This is a great place to stay with friends and alone too. Its all day - free flow of bread, fruit jams, peanut butter & even butter are the source of energy for me and my friends during our stay!

My wife and I stayed here for seven nights in total and had a fantastic experience. The hostel is a refitted apartment and they have three rooms with 12 beds in total (an 8-bed mixed dorm, a 4-bed mixed dorm and a 4-bed ladies dorm). We loved the place so much that we rebooked for a few extra nights when...

Mike is a real stand up guy. He's always got a smile on his face and is very welcoming when you get there. After I walked in with my backpack, he showed me to my bed. The are regular bunk beds, but the rooms are small, so there is little room to maneuver around. I got one closer to the...
