El hostal esta bastante bien en general pero es importante llegar antes de las diez de la noche porque despues la ciudad se apaga por completo y es imposible eencontrarlo. Por lo demas todo muy bien, ambiente, servicio etc

Extremely exceptional value! Nice front room which can sit and socialise in, helped with meeting fellow travellers. They have me a 3 bed dorm when booked 7 bed dorm. Did day trip - transport only to go to wang family courtyard and castle. Helped with train tickets (for fee).

Good location, nice building no cost WiFi and low priced beer

  Customer Review 

Location is excellent just a couple of mins walk from the main street so close enough in yet not too noisy food inside the cafe is not bad but a tad expensive

  Customer Review 

The location is within the heart of the old town and also the hostel style fits perfectly with the local surrounding architecture. The tour to the Wang household compound and also the castle is very good. The room (6 bed mixed dorm) was also very spacious.

  Customer Review 

I think the building was beautiful along with the whole hostel had a miraculous atmosphere. Moreover, the staff was really nice and helpful in everything I asked them. They also let me leave mz luggage right after check in which was really convenient.
