For the 2nd year in a row, I called Colonial House my home, this time for 3 weeks. Ornella and her staff of helpful and über-friendly volunteers make their house feel like your own. My room was large, the hostel was spotless, and the people wandering through for a few days at a time were a pleasure to get to...

We loved staying here. The place has a cool garden, pool table, free coffee, great breakfast and much more. Only one minor remark: the guest kitchen could be slightly better equipped (we had to borrow heavily from the staff kitchen to cook our meal). Definitely recommend this place!
