    Within walking diastance of the CBD, shopping, restaurants & beach area. Place was very clean, staff friendly & informative.

    Could have used more bathrooms & toilets. Sometimes it was a long wait & the hostel wasn't even full.

    The woman who checked us in and helped us with breakfast, Jana, is lovely. Definitely the best part of our experience there.

    Nothing to improve, keep up the good work!

    Kevin at Reception is professional and courteous and is always one step ahead. He makes the moniker “Your home away from home” real. I had a great time at this backpackers. Highly recommended.

    Lovely small hostel and the staff are so wonderful. Helped my friend and I with anything we needed and went above and beyond in different ways to help us. Very homey feel to this hostel.

    Little bit far from the city but they do have a shuttle bus that goes a couple of times a day.
