    Great place, perfect location

    CAMILA M. (January 2015)

    My first time here and will definitely return. The room was more comfortable and better equipped that I had expected and the roof terrace was a real drawcard for my friend and I.

    Margaret B. (January 2015)

    Friendly service and in good condition. Smokers area on rooftop is rather unpleasant for non smokers

    Jann M. (January 2015)

    Views from the balcony are excellent! Rooms are really nice and the kitchens were clean and had plenty of space!

    Codie S. (January 2015)

    Million dollar location for budget price. Good facilities, interesting history and friendly staff. Value for money.

    Bradley J. (January 2015)

    Very Nice Hostel! Nice staff and a amazing view!!!

    Torben H. (January 2015)

    I feel very much at home when we stay there.

    Victoria M. (January 2015)

    Excellent location. Very interesting design as it is built over archaeological digs. Very modern and all the amenities you would need. Not surprised it has won awards.

    Stephen B. (January 2015)

    I was really pleased that one of the rooms I booked on the 3rd level was adjacent to the rooftop view of the harbour! What a bonus. The facilities and especially the kitchen were kept very clean.
