I chose this hostel based on the positive comments on trip advisor, the nice room photos on their website and the price. Unfortunately this place did not meet my needs. The top of the private room wall has a clear glass/Plexiglas and the hallway light spills into the room. The” firm” queen bed was too firm; I would say it was hard. So I did not have a comfortable night. Perhaps there are other rooms that don’t have these issues, but I only stayed one night.
They have 2 computers upstairs that the guest can use, which I very much appreciated, but I could not print the flight boarding pass, the printer “does not work”, I was told.
The 3 guys that run the place are very much in touch with their customers. One of them is bit defensive, but overall they do what is best for the business, ensure that the customer is not unhappy even if it means going above and beyond the line of duty. They are knowledgeable, helpful and will go the extra mile to make you happy; one very good reason to get good reviews.
