Ok for a cheap backpacker, But you wont be hanging around the hostel much because there's better places to be. The name is kind of miss leading, its NOT a Hotel it's a backpacker hostel.
It is quite far from the centre of town 40min walk, but there are other things to see reasonably nearby, once you've checkout the centre of town for a day.
So definitely hire a bike, trust me its the best 10 euro you'll spend, its also the best way to get home from town.
We did a mixture of walking (a hell of alot of it, like 8km a day) mainly and traming into town but it gets soooo expensive and tiring.
The area it'self is nice there's a park across the road. Also go to the market place during the day, it's awesome and right on your door step!
If you walk out the door of the hostel facing the park, turn left and then first road right. Walk straight ahead past the park and you'll find it.
The Hostels not that clean and there was a hole in the wall in our bathroom
Room 4 my sis, friend, Mum and I where in was really small for 4 people we could hardly move with all our stuff in the room. One bunk bed half blocks the door to the bathroom so the door only opens halfway and you have to squeeze through into the bathroom, which is actually quite good. Nice big tub with shower overhead and good pressure. No amenities included though so bring your own soap and towel or you can hire towel for 1.50 euros.
The mattresses are really hard but linen good.
Breakfast is a joke, don't even pay extra and waste your money. Go down the road and get something nice.
Its just coffee, bread and peanut butter. Which by the way I had to spread on my toast with a spoon because they only have 5 knifes in the whole hostel,
I'm not even joking that's all you get and if your not there between 8-9 am it's usually all gone.
We stayed in the holidays so it wasn't actually that cheap for us especially on the Friday, but like everyone else that posted on here we stayed here as a last resort as everything else was booked out.
