Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very clean and quiet hostel. Location is a 25-minute walk to the downtown area, but there is lots to do in the west that is more locals-oriented. The public pool is about a 6 minute walk away, and there's a fantastic bakery around the corner from the hostel.
