Stayed at this place twice. Very cute and colourful hostel. Nice staff and awesome breakfast. The first room we had was not that nice, however the second room was much better. The location of the hostel is apparently very safe.

Karolina, who is the owner, is a wonderful hostess and takes good care to make sure everything is nice and clean. I would call this more a Hostel than a hotel, as you have a lot of common areas used for Breakfast (free) or meals, you have access to cooking utensils, stove, microwave, hot water ECT.

The sign at the gate says "Kap's Place". Sounds almost like a Times Square peep show, or some Brooklyn corner bar, or a run-down shed selling live bait on a forgotten Dixie highway. Nope. Enter the double gates and you are immediately transported to Paradise Found. You are now on a narrow path enclosed by primitive native murals lined on...
