    Tried to pull a switcheroo on my room

    I had the balcony room reserved for one night but they tried to give me a vastly inferior, coffin room instead and when I called them on it, they said the room I reserved wasn't available and they would give me a minor discount on the cheap room which was still way too high a price for it. They probably had found somebody who wanted my room for more than one night and figured I would take a cheap , being left with no other option. I instead went to the Roca Hostel nearby and that was a much better option at a much lower price.

    A great place to crash

    I had never stayed in a hostel before and wanted to make a go of it. I am glad I did. Overall, I had a wonderful stay here. This is a family-owned operation, run by genuine, down-to-earth people-the kind of people you want to give your money to. It is located well within walking/cycling distance to all of the local bars. The accommodations were more than adequate for my needs. I would have no problem staying here again.

    Feeling like a home

    This hotel is like staying with a family. They are sweet and eager to see that you are happy. The location is easy walking to anywhere you want to go. But far enough to get away from the party and get some sleep. Bike rentals are right on the property. And if you are missing your family pet back home. There are plenty here that are happy to get some of your attention.

    Free coffee and drinking water, unfortunately we had mosquitos in the room and it was also hot. The ceiling fan did't help that much.

    Zeer vriendelijke eigenaar

    De eigenaar is zeer vriendelijk en erg behulpzaam. Ze behandelen je als familie. Onze kamer had ook een keuken. De ramen kunnen alleen niet dicht en je hoort s nachts muziek. Ook hadden we geen WiFi in de kamer. We konden fietsen huren wat erg handig is.
