We are sorry for inconvenience. Lock out time between 11-16:00 is for cleaning and go out to buy equipment. We need this time to prepare for welcoming our guests. We appreciate your understanding.

You really feel the difference between "guest house" and just "hostel/dorm" with this place. It is super clean, the staff is beyond friendly and the dorms are very cozy. I can't think if a single thing I would recommend to change.

Located in a quieter area of town, a solid 20 minute walk from train/bus station, but only 5 minutes from the castle. Staff are wonderful, upbeat and very helpful (and well organized!). Common area is large, and so is the reading area (which I loved)....More
