Great place, great breakfast
We had a great stay. Free breakfast was really good. Staff does a great job keeping the place clean - always washing the floors. The sheets are a bit weird - either polyester, or fleece-like. Location is great, at the edge of town so close to things but not too loud, not a noisy party hostel. We would highly recommend this place.

Great stay
Stayed for 2 nights,the place is basic but good value for money and perfect for our needs. We had a private room with ensuite, the staff were really helpful with booking onward bus journeys and a hot air balloon ride (a must)! Breakfast was also delicious. All in all not the most luxurious of stays but didn’t expect it to be and really happy with what we got vs the price we paid. The whole town lost its water supply on our second night and the hostel handled it really well delivering big bottles of water to all the rooms and working tirelessly to try and keep the place clean and ticking over.

Top pour 2 nuits
Hôtel bien placé, situé tout à bout de la rue animée. On peut tout faire à pied, un peu loin tout de même des petits bars plus sympa et plus calme pour les couchers de soleil par exemple ... plus proche des coins pour faire la fêtes ! Mais l’hotel est très propre, la chambre fonctionnelle, agréable, établissement calme, petit dej salé uniquement, personnel souriant !
