I enjoyed talking with the others in the hostel-- students and visitors. This is located very conveniently, and I must say was one of the best hostels I have been to. I have re-booked another stay because I liked it so much.

This was a really nice hostel. It was clean, the water was warm, the people were friendly and you get orange juice at breakfast! Their strict no-alcohol policy works well and the staff were exceptionally friendly and well-informed. I will stay there again!

This is a very clean hostel. It was 16 euro but worth it. Located just off the square it is easy to get to any attractions / water / shopping area / pubs. Friendly staff. Good WIFI, clean kitchen and lounge, decent breakfast, free towels, good access to lockers and luggage room.
