Loved it. Best hostel I have been to so far. The location was excellent and I was given tips for getting around. The rooms were clean and the staff makes everyone feel welcome. I highly recommend and it even has space for cars and bikes.

Very clean, well maintained, and awesome people! I am from Canada and like the cold and the air conditioning was more than able to keep me as cold as I liked! Most others do not. Big bed private rooms available and a good price!
