The place is clean and the staff are friendly. You get what you pay for here. It's cheap and therefore not luxurious but it is comfortable to stay here. There is a TV room, dining room and kitchen for preparing food. The other guests we're courteous on this occasion. My 6 year old son enjoyed it here.

“look for an accommodation not to central (5-10 mins walking distance places are the best). Central hostels are just too noisy and normally close to a night club and noisy bars.”
