Great breakfast experience

Negative Reviews

Noise problems may be encountered

There were nights when guests were disturbed by the noise of slamming doors from nearby rooms, church bells, and the flight path. The noise in the night is not a regular thing though, so you can rest assured that you'll still have a peaceful sleep.

Malfunctioning lift

Some guests had to climb through the emergency hatch from the terrace because the lift is not working. When the lift is malfunctioning during your stay, you will have no other choice but to climb the stairs.

Spotty and unreliable Wi-Fi connection

Wi-Fi in the hostel may not be efficient for your needs. According to guests, there is Internet signal inside the rooms but it could be spotty and unreliable at certain times.
