I thought the price was a bit on the expensive side, but otherwise it's a good place where to spend several nights: calm, clean and cozy. Staff was extremely welcoming and helpful with any issue you might have. I was allowed to an early check-in and late check-out. They also lend you the keys of the front door, so you can walk in and out anytime you want. It's a forty-minute walk to the city centre, not so close but doable (there buses stopping close-by).

Shower had lots of mould under the seals from not being thoroughly cleaned and also mould on the bathroom ceiling. There was no offer to help carry our bags up the three steep flights of steps to our room with no lift. The beds were clean but mattresses had springs poking through which wasn't very comfortable.


What a great place to stay! The staff were friendly and accommodating, the room and bathroom were exceptionally clean, and the area was quiet. There was a small bus ride to get from the hostel, but that was totally worth it for such a nice place to stay.
