    Very comfortable beds, nice and thoughtful design. Very friendly and helpful staff. Boardgames in the common area. Courtyard garden and rooftop terrace. Drinking water available. All in all amazing value for money.

    It was a bit further away from the centre than most other hostels.

    Really, it just went beyond my expectations! Everything perfect and very clean. They didn’t even want me to pay for a bowl that I accidentally broke, even if I insisted! I would DEFINITELY go back, you have all comforts for a hostel price

    I have to say that in the end the situation has been handled well: we had bought tickets for the horseback riding tour, as described on the book they have printed and also send to you by mail. The tour has been nice, but shorter than expected. We have asked the lady at the desk and she just replied “oh yes, because we changed it. We don’t do it with those people any longer”. When we tried to reply “yes, but that’s what was sold to us, and what we decided to buy...” she said “sorry, that’s the way it is”. We were very, VERY pisses off by the answer. Luckily the young boy, who had sold us the tour, has understood the situation and very kindly made us a small discount. At least he has been very friendly and tried to fix the problem! Anyway, the whole staff has been great all the time. Only downside was this episode.

    Absolutely gorgeous and spacious room, with a great little kitchenette and huge terrace. The beds were so comfortable and the thick blankets so snuggly. Great location near to the centre but very peaceful, good laundry service, really quite lovely.

    Perhaps only the fact that it can be a bit noisy, as the room is just above the common areas.
