  • I booked this hostel because it has great reviews and photos (f.ex. at HostelWorld)...but reality is very different. Rooms are wet, moldy and stinky. When I asked lady at the reception for another room, she was very unpleasant...and after that moved us to another but still ugly room. If you want something nice and clean, don ´t go there.
  • The view from the terrace is great and very close to the main square
  • Friendly staff, clean, nice breakfast
  • Great Hostel nice terrace confortable beds
  • Very good Hostel, excellent location, good...
