My girl and I are traveling already for 4 months through South America, but we never had such grumpy staff before. Not only the girl from the reception, even all the cleaners and the people that helps in the kitchen. The beds are too small, I'm 1,97m but even for someone who is 1,80m it's way too small and the...

We stayed here for one (cold) night in June. It is very central, only a couple of blocks from the ferry port and next to the old town. The 8 bed dorm was big and spacious, though cold in winter, as were the common areas. The shared bathrooms were on the courtyard which meant going outside to go to the...

Breakfast is simple and organized well (toest, butter, jelly, cofe, chocolate milk). Price was resonable and includes a towel and a bar of soap. The rooms are clean, organized and have...

“We had a standard double. Maybe try the superior for painted walls that look more like a room than a building site”

“Do not be put off by the front rooms. The street is very quiet and gets you away from the intenal courtyard which was being upgraded whlie we were there. We are early 60 year old independent travellers and found it acceptable for our limited stay.”
