It was so cosy, and I felt like home. Not too many people and not too few, I got some friends and still it was calm. Beautiful outside the window and a so nice place.

The price-performance Ratio is low. Just one bathroom/toilett for roughly 14 People (downflor). The ceilings are low, so if you have a drom bed and a upside position, it´s quite uncomfortable. Conditions of the accomodation and equipment is also low and old. No problem with an old hostel - but not for more than 5.000 IKR/night. (highest price of all (6) during my trip) The staff is friendly and helpfull, the hostel is also clean. The Location is also very good, a lot of things to explore around.

Dortoir peu pratique (manque de prises électriques). Salle de bain peu fonctionnelle (hormis la douche, dont le sol était détrempé, le tapis de bain imbibé), aucun espace clos pour se changer ou faire sa toilette. Cuisine étroite, trop petite pour une auberge bondée. Salle à manger agréable.
