We stayed here for 3 nights. The private room at the back was a little dark and small but it had everything we need and didn't get too hot. The double bed was comfortable and there was TV in the room. The toilets and showers were kept spotless as was the rest of the hostel. I saw the staff cleaning...

The owner is very nice and helpful and supports in all situation. She booked e.g. flights for us with her credit card as ours was not accepted and we gave her cash. Only small...

There were apparently bed bugs in the large private room and the cleanliness overall was subpar. Owner helped with my laundry but refused a refund despite the bites. She admitted they'd had bedbugs before but claimed not in the private rooms though another person's review on here contradicts that. Shower water didn't get hot and one of the toilets was...

Lucy is the landlady and she's created a homely feel to the place. Possibly because this is a conversion! The kitchen and living room are a good size and functional, the terrace outside offers wonderful respite from the humidity in the late afternoon. Her side sick is her dog, Lucas. He's a bit barky but is actually just a big...

We arrived to the grand hostel without reservation after finding out other hostels were fully booked for the weekend. To our great relief they had both private rooms and doorms available and we winded up staying for 5 nights. The owner lucy is one of the nicest people we met and she helped us a lot with every little thing...
