Nice but pricey
Nice hostel, friendly staff, had a nice time there. Although, the price is very high. (I know tours are included and breakfast, and and and) BUT in fact you had to sign up on every tour, in my case I missed the first tour because the flight was in the afternoon and it wasn't possible for me to join them, so I expected I could join the tour on Saturday (I checked out on Saturday) but you have to book your night if you want to join the tour the day. As well as the tours were not fully for free -- you were always, not to say forced, to tip the drivers who expected for shorter tours 10 bucks and for longer 20 bucks. so that's a lot compared to what you hear from "free tours." The breakfast was just pancakes and coffee (I like pancakes but not coffee) so don't expect a full continental breakfast and as well you had to make the pancakes for yourself (that's totally ok) but the kitchen was usually totally crowded in the mornings due to the early departing tours. The room itself was pretty much dirty, lot of stuff from the people who lived there before. I got a streetside room so this was also sometimes really loud, and they really did a lot of smoking (of the other stuff), it's not that I am not ok with it, it was just the fact that you went to bed and woke up in the morning with a beautiful weed-scent. so this was not so cool. But on the other hand it was always nice when you came home from the tours, you could also jump into the whirlpool and have a beer (Fridays there is a keg for free, first come first serve based!!) with your friends. its a nice place to stay for travelers who like to party and meet new friends (met a lot of them) and to hang out, but definitely not to have your undisturbed and quiet and cheap stay. so all in all I would give 3 out of 5 points -- not bad, not really super good. Though I'd like to thank all the guys who made it a nice stay.
