I had the best month of my life staying at the hostel. From the very first day I arrived I felt welcomed, the guys (both the staff and guests) were extremely kind and helpful, and I feel I made friends with them for life. They certainly feel now like a second family to me, I'm gonna miss the place and the city so much! I'll definitely come back one day. In the meantime, I depart with so many warm and beautiful memories. Thank you all for the experience of a lifetime!

Missed the place the very day I left.
