I stayed there for the second time, this time in a dorm. After two nights someone had stolen my bikini and my jacket, that was like my second skin to me. I hate that I didn't choose a private room again. In the dorms there are no possibilities to lock your backpack like in other hostels.

I liked the structure of the rooms and facilities like the pool. The breakfast was also very goog, but it's too far fron the center of the city.
