Guests can enjoy the on-site bar. You can play billiards at the hostel, car hire is available on site and an airport shuttle service is offered at a surcharge. Wow. The place is full of vibe and friendly staff. As a guest you know sometimes we hardly talk to each other just because we can’t just start a conversation with someone you don’t know but trust me guys. All the guests were so friendly and welcoming. They greet you as if they know you and even asked you to join them in whatever activity happening at that moment. We played games danced and even walked around the town after hours. You know what guys, see you June and December again...

Hostels – what are they?

Hostels offer so much more than a cheap place to stay – they're also a fun way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens and game rooms give you the chance to swap tips, tricks, and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world. <br><br> Hostels have come a long way since the first youth hostel opened back in 1912. Nowadays there's something for everyone, from budget "crash pads" to 5-star "poshtels." Whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll see that most hostels are cheaper than local hotels – and a lot more fun, too!
