Reviewed 6 December 2016

An outstanding location in the heart of the old city - perfect for feeling the city vibes, exploring day & night life, or simply meditating while watching the old Forum or the island. I stayed in a winter season, a period when the city is not so full of life in afternoons and nights. However, although sometimes I've been alone...

This hostel has real modern character with its cool decor. It's a great place if you are travelling light and not stopping for long. There is not much room but the beds are great and private with their pull down screens. Security is good including a draw for locking away things that can only be unlocked with you security card....

I usually book my hostels after checking the TripAdvisor ratings, and this time I do feel I went wrong. The place has a great location, however it was a fairly expensive option. The rooms are super tiny and if you have an upper bunk it's very inconvenient to get into. There are definitely better options available! My favourite part of...

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. We do regret you didn't find our four bed dorm suitable for you.

The hostel is excellent,rooms are modern and comfortable. Staff is very polite and kind. But hostel is located next to the church and church bells starts ringing at 6 am. That is the first thing you hear in the morning and that wokes you up...And keeps ringing and ringing and ringing...Very annoying...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your time to write us this review. We are glad that you liked our hostel and your stay overall. As for the bell tower, our first neighbor in the center of center, it just doesn't listen us when we ask it to be quiet. But we'll keep our faith. Until then, we can...

Reviewed 17 November 2016 via mobile

This is the best hostel I've been to. I was in a 4-bed room but that bed feels like a small room. Interiors of the hostel are beautiful and I have to say the cleanness is really on a high level. The staff is kind and willing to help out. The breakfast choice is diverse and delicious.

Stayed in room on third floor with fantastic view of Forum. Great location in old town. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Room was nice but bear in mind steep sides of floor each side of bed - may not suit all. No lift to get to third floor.

The Boutique Forum hostel is modern and very clean and the location is central. It was nice to stay in a dorm that had a private toilet and shower and each bed had 2 blinds for privacy. Waking up to a view of the city and mini continental breakfast to go next to my bed was an added bonus. I...

Boutique Hostel Forum is more on the level of the hotel than hostel. Breakfast was great, room was clean and tidy, personel very very friendly. they alowed pets so that is another benefit. Value for money is more than resonable. love it!

A friend and I had a three night stay in the twin room this October. The location is ideal and only a 15-20 minute walk to the bus station that takes you to the National Parks.
