How has this hostel rated in the past?
This place is standard on almost all accounts but stands out positivly in a number of ways. The staff is extremly helpful and good company, the price is reasonable for the dorms + You get a free drink when you check in! A good kitchen and a roomy bar altso makes it a satisfactory stay. Not much more to say really, you get what you pay for and you might even get a smile out of it! =)
