Margot Theisinger brings a touch of maternal care to this small, central, backpackers' hostel, just five minutes' walk from the centre of town. Brightly painted dormitories (to match the colourful outside walls) with wooden floors have six or ten beds, and their own showers and toilet en suite. There is a self-catering kitchen, a barbecue area and lockers in the large room. Guests are collected free of charge from the bus terminal.
