    The hostel is a little bit far from the train station, but is very close to the main attractions of the city. I booked this hostel because I thought they would help us with the trips, but all of them were very expensive and they couldn't make any effort even to sell it for us. It seemed like they didn't know much of the atractions there and the girl from reception stays in a locked room and we don't feel very confortable to ask for help. The place should have a locker to keep our things secure.
