What travellers think
This was possibly the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The manager went out of her way to greet me when I was delayed and arrived late. The place was the cleanest I have seen and the manager even got up and made breakfast. She was polite and nice to talk to And went above and beyond to make my stay a great one. The views were phenomenal And I love the history of the building. My only regret was not planning more time to stay. I intend to stay at least a week next time!
