Super friendly staff right off the bat, extremely helpful and nice. They can give you tons of advice on things to see and do and even book tours for you to make it easier. There's free wifi which is a huge bonus and free pasta and rice!! Who doesn't want free food?!
The rooms are super clean, comforters are so warm and comfy! Free towels and warm showers! Free tea and coffee as well!
New place but worth the stay!!

good place for backpackers. I had a very nice time. The staff is really creative. They scored a ride for me. And the price is the lowest. Only the matrass was a bit hard but comfortable enough. Thnx everybody!
