Reviewed 16 July 2008

We stayed here for 2 nights in early july 2008. It's a new hostel, but in a converted period building, with lovelingly restored wooden floors in the rooms and a perfect paint job on the walls. All feels very light and spacious with new beds and linen etc.

The owner, Sebastian, was a fantastic host, he was very helpful and when he was not helping guests seemed to spend most of his time cleaning the hostel, it was spotless!

The hostel is located right in the middle of the old town near the main Piata, everything is within easy walking distance.

The only drawback is that the hostel does not have it's own kitchen or lounge yet, but there is ample space for this and we were told it was coming soon. Besides there's plenty of cafes and restaurants around the corner, so it's not a massive problem for the meanwhile.

To top it all Sebastian owns a cute puppy, Maddox, who was loads of fun. But hurry, he'll grow up soon!!!
