“Its a tiny B&B not a hostle.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2009

This place is a tiny B&B .The rooms are small .There is no dining room ,breakfast has to be brought to your room as there is no where else for it .
The only reason it is now called a hostel is the rooms are not ensuite and are to small to be ensuite .Some rooms do not have windows .
reasonable clean ,a lot of noise from the street day and night .
overpriced for a hostel .

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2009

I have used this hostel for a temporary stay of only a few hours. However, I think it is by far the best place if you are looking for friendly staff, clean accomodation, which will, though it is simple, satisfy all your needs. The staff will go out of its way to help you. and the location is very good, since it is near a busy street with many shops and a market, this street will lead you to the city center. All in all, if you are not looking for a room for 20, and don't intend to use your rooms for parties, this is the place for you. The meals are all served as room service.
