Reviews (7.3 Very good)
Great hostel, too bad far from town.
Beautiful place in a beautiful town. Easy to reach also by bus. Nice price. Breakfast should offer a better choice of food.
This is a nice hostel with beautiful views.it is enough clean.the bad thing about this hostel is that the beds are uncomfortable!but I think it's worth staying there.
I like the hostel as building I had heard a lot about it. Unfortunatelly attention wasn´t so good, breakfast neither. Cleaning wasn´t so efficient, the only good thing was showers. In the bathroom there wasn´t any towels (paper towels) and soap. :( Maybe changed a lot since the moment "Lets go guide" wrote the comments.
This was a good hostel, just quite far out from the town centre. Clean, hot showers, and a great dinner for 10 euros. Free breakfast, but it's just a hot drink and some bread. Right in the middle of nature, so if you go in summer, bring some mosquito repellent! Clean room, but no self catering kitchen! If you want to leave before 7am you must check out the previous evening. They take your passport as well, so if you are an EU citizen and want your discount at the museums, bring a photocopy of your passport!
