Excellent”

Bed is very clean. Sheets smells clean and comfortable bed. Toilets are a little far for the private room and when it’s raining there is no shelter to the toilet. But toilets are clean. Overall good and will recommend to others.

If you want to stay at a place where you widen your horizon, this is it! The hostel itself is very nice, in the bar you will meet interesting people and in the neighborhood really good restaurants. And if you have time take one of the tours they are offering.
