Very cool, relaxed hostel with a hippy vibe. Good price for budget travellers and a great spot to chill out in. They have a little patio to drink Coca tea and smoke. They also have a nice little tv room with lots of DVDs. The rooms have funky names and decor and are well laid out. Highly recommend.

I had stayed here six months ago, and it was already very nice, which is why I came back. What a surprise, the rooms have been painted, the mattresses seem like they have been changed, there is a new computer in the lounge area, and the staff are as friendly as ever. Gretty was also very helpful in getting the...
