    Asylum hostel is special. I felt very welcome at this hostel which is perfectly located near the city center at a walking distance from the beautiful Botanical Gardens. The atmosphere is very cozy. It has a homy atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. They remembered my name right away and I felt like coming home every evening. I feel like this vibe is also attracting similar minded people. I met some very cool people with whom I shared inspiring stories. I already booked my next stay!
