No complaints. Loved how accessible the location is to everything. Stayed the weekend with my almost 4 year old son and he was calling it home. He was sad to leave. Will be staying again when we do our next lomg weekend away.

Good support of the staff and kitchen super clean with a lot of accessories. There is a wall to climb in a partner company super closer to the Hostel. And The location is also great, next to supermarket and restaurants.

The location is good. Walking distance to restaurants and some tourist spots. However , the cleanness was not really good, especially the washroom , there were some used toilet paper on the floor and the smell of the female toilet was yucky.
