The place was clean and the staff was friendly. However the pictures are misleading: the bathrooms were shared for the type of room we booked and this was not specified. Also the towels are only available if you rent them.

The location is good, a 10-min walk from the Lower Town and 25-min walk away from the main bus station. The dorm room that I stayed in was bright and spacious. A/C was strong (a little too strong as I slept just in front of it). Wifi was initially sporadic, but became okay after the staff re-started the modem. Only...

We stayed in private room - 1 bed with a sofa, tv and private bathroom. It was perfectly clean! The bedroom is a very good...

The hostel had fine beds, decent rooms and good sanitary services. Although we came in a quiet and rainy period, we had a lot of fun in the city and we had some nice conversations with the working hosts! The girl even gave us some good rakija of her own to taste. The location was fine too, and I would...
