Youthhostel très moderne et confortable. L'emplacement le cadre de cet hotel n'est pas particulièrement charmant mais pratique et fonctionnel. Les aménagements sont tres propres et bien équipés. Super cuisine! Je n'ai pas aimé les fenêtres qui ne s'ouvrent pas avec juste ventilation. C'etait calme malgré que ce youth est particulierement grand.

When I stayed here, there was a water main break and the hostel had no running water. I was very impressed with how professional the hostel handled the situation even though the guests were rather mad. This place was super clean but I didn't expect it to have a hotel style layout. The location is a bit distant from the center of town but it wasn't too inconvenient. I would definitely recommend this hostel if you need a relaxed atmosphere!

L'ensemble était très bien, mais il manque vraiment une personne à la réception que parle le Français et où le Portuguese....ou l'italien.
