Liked: super friendly staff that will happily help you with all your trip planning needs, respond to complaints or requests you might have; clean, amazing location; most communal atmosphere of any hostel I stayed in so far as fostered by management
Disliked: Not a whole lot of space to put your stuff in the dorm rooms, but upon my mentioning this, I think they might already be working to fix this with extra shelves or similar

Rolling my head round at Allan I sighed. It was pedalling, not moaning that would pick at the remaining 800 kms to Istanbul, and so I begrudgingly pushed Allan to the road. A week of impatient riding rolled me down the Bulgarian coast and into European Turkey.
... I quickly rectified the issue and while we sat there, there were more than a few moments of nervous girlish giggling.
Our lady, or matron as this seems the best term to describe her, came back in after about half an our by which time we were covered in steamy goodness and she had reappeared in her bra and underwear. She got us one at a time to sit on the large raised square stone in the centre of the room, that Rebecca told us was called the tummy stone. We each ...
