Perfect hostel. Very nice twin room. It was warm (we visited when there was snow). Very good location and good personalized breakfast. Friendly staff (Ivan) whi has great local knowledge. Last but not least: they have a parking lot so we could easily park our rented car. Very recommended hostel!

Beautiful old hostel and garden. Nice breakfast, great hosts. But please do something about the doors to the bedrooms. They make so much noise. Everyone wakes up at night when someone visits the toilet. The only toilet on the first floor is in the bathroom. So better stay downstairs.

The location is really nice, in the center of the Old town. The area is very beautiful and not noisy.

This award winning amazing hostel is a converted 150 year old traditional house, located in the 'old city'. It provides a great breakfast (with coffee machine) - coffee & tea available all day; large showers with fittings that actually work!!! Great & comfortable beds, dorms are not over crowded. Super helpful & friendly staff. Great garden with covered outdoor kitchen....

This hostel is simply wonderful. Situated in the Old Town in a historic building. The room was warm, stylish and comfortable. There was a welcome board when we arrived that was such a nice touch. The staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. Thank you for such a wonderful stay. We will be back!!!!!

We stayed 3 nights. It is a gorgeous hostel. It looks more of a luxurious hotel to us. Lot of old people staying there. Not much of a vibe. We were there late september. The beds were confortable but no bunk beds in the dorms... Look like an orphenage to me. Staff is amazing. Very helpful. Very nice. Good breakfast...

It was one of the best accommodations we had on a very long trip. Wonderful building, great rooms, lovely yard, friendly people! Try it! Definitely try it! It's worth! My favorite was the yard where we could have our breakfast. Had such a peaceful atmosphere...
