5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Great location. 2-10 minutes walking distance to most places of interest. very helpful staff and clean. Only negative side is that it is next to restaurants who turn into clubs at night. The sliding doors are not soundproof so you will here the booms of the music until abouts 1-2 am. Not the best if you have early morning activities. But other than that, nothing but positives.

      Not your regular type of hostel

      Clean room with beautiful mountain views. Cool rooftop bar restaurant. The service was great but Marianne from Montreal at the activities counter was so wonderful!! She made it so easy to book our skydiving experience and not only was informative but very honest so there was no room for surprise costs.
