Thanks for the great review and comments. We work very hard to make our hostel affordable and allow for as many "Freebies" as we can. In doing the budget for this year, we will delve in a little more and see what we can come up with. Good to hear that everything was good for you and we hope to see you again in the future. All the best,

Bathrooms on the 3rd floor could use a makeover and some elements of room 310 where we stayed as well. All other things were perfect!

Thanks for the comments. We should be doing some sprucing up to our restrooms next year, and we will take a look at room 310 as well. At this point all of our rooms have been repainted and are looking much more updated than a year ago. Glad to hear your stay was great. All the best,
