Really nice lounge and kitchen area, and lockers for bags, which were useful. Location great too. Quite a relaxed and quieter hostel, but having a far more party-orientated sister hostel is very good as they organise activities, such as a fun bar crawl.

A hostel for the upper class of the backpacker community! Absolutely gorgeous hostel located in a nice quite location of the old town. The hostel couldn&'t possibly be cleaner or far more modern. The one woman army Kristine, who does everything by herself does an outstanding job! Can&'t fault a thing.

Peaceful calm place, like being at home, and they&'re tied up with the naughty squirrel Hostel so you can pop over there in the evening if feel like a bar crawl or such. Best of each worlds

It felt like staying inside your own house but with very nice people to talk to inside the common areas. It was really noiseless inside the room and comfortable. Extremely clean too. It had a really comforting atmosphere.

Brilliant hostel! location is perfect, the employees are really warm and friendly and helpful, really relaxing. not a party hostel but i wasn&'t looking for that. this hostel is really the standard that all others should aim for.

Everything! I usually don&'t leave comments but this place was everything that it says it is - warm, friendly, clean, great atmosphere, centrally situated - a nice place to relax and chill out in after a day of exploring. The employees are super warm and friendly and often on hand to hel[ with questions or gove their advice. I have stayed at many places rated about 90% but this was by far the best, it feels a lot more like home than a hostel!
