The hostelis the best example of what a the hostelshould be. The owners have done an amazing job at organizing the hostelin a way that it doesn't feel like a business, but rather a home. the hostelis tucked away in a neighborhood for a sense of privacy but also close enough tothe the hostelfor an enjoyable walk through the town. The staff here is very accommodating and always go beyond to enhance the guest's experience. It feels cozy but there's enough space to find time alone. It's perfect for both introverts that want their space and also someone looking for things to do!

My time in the hostelwas great, so great that I extended over my 3 months. The hours are reasonable, and the work gives you the opportunity to socialize and meet wonderful people around the world. Everyone I met here became my family. Everyone helps each other out and looks out for each other, whether it be Work related or personal related. (The kitchen is a huge Plus as well!) the hostelhas been a great experience, and im so glad I came here.
