This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It was a very friendly and safe place. The Hostel had a good kitchen so we could cook after eating out for so long. Also the place is 5 min walk from the market which was nice. The view from the hostel was good too - overall a comfortable and clean place and the people we shared our room with were quite nice and accomodating which made the experience very good...

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I slept in a 6-bedroom wich was fine. Unfortunately it was lot of snoring in my room...bad luck...but something to have in mind, bring ear-plugs:)
Also good to know is that they have 2-bedroom but they don´t have them awailable if you book online---make a call and check!!!
Also bring you own sheets the one you can borrow are NOT nice!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

overall a really nice hostel, good location, 10 mins walk in to town. value for money is good, however, the breakfast not so.
Facilities are limited, wi-fi available but only if you have a laptop, and kitchen is pretty basic, ie only gas hobs.
Friendly staff who are only a bell ring away.
definitely recommend this place for meeting people just out to have a good time and hit the slopes with.
