Very good 8.2 From 20 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Proper Hostel
Good location for visiting the thermal pools and sightseeing. Bit of a younger crowd which may be appealing to some. Bar downstairs is lively and drinks are cheap. Parking is easy. Get what you pay for-proper hostel. No more, no less. Easy to book sightseeing activities. Yes, the town smells, but that’s not the Hostel’s fault. It smells like sulfur.

Good 6.0
Risk your personal belongings
I was really disappointed that the hostel does not offer any kind of safe storage such as lockers. When i asked about this, the receptionist kind of laughed in my face which made me feel as though they did not care about the safety of my personal belongings. I felt that this represented the businesses lack of understanding towards their target market, people who are travelling from different countries with important documents such as passports, cameras and mobile phones. Apart from that, I enjoyed my time staying here.
