This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The location is pretty central and easy to find. Close to main sights and water bus station which is fantastic! But I did come across other hostels charging only 26 euro with better facilities and sheets included! So I feel 35 euro was a bit on the high side. There are better value hostels. Having said that, the reception is friendly and helpful and they make an effort to chat with the travelers.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

nice service, and location.
