This is no doubt the best hostel I have stayed in! The outdoor area was amazing, and was fantastic for enjoying the sunshine by the pool. The staff where very friendly and helpful, and the hostel was very clean throughout.

Paradiso was the perfect haven to retreat to between my trips into the wilderness. The kitchens and bathrooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and it really did begin to feel like a home.

On paper this hostel is great and I don't have anything serious to complain about. There's free soup, breakfast, wifi, a pool, suana, spa, table tennis.

This backpackers has adequate facilities and we had no major issues here. Staff were pretty helpful and flexible and free breakfast was a bonus. Looks like a place which would be great in summer, with a large outdoor area and swimming pool etc. I would say that it's probably more of a party backpackers. Although some noise at night doesn't...
