The staff is helpful and friendly, location is convenient for bars and restaurant and the major sights are easily reachable either with the underground or a good walk. I definitely recommend this stay!
We stayed 2 times at this hostel, at the beginning and at the end of the trip. 1st time the owner had given our room to somebody else, so he booked a better room at another hotel. It's all good until the moment the receptionist at the other hotel tried to charge us the rate difference (we didn't pay, off course). 2nd time we stayed at the hostel. Internet was spotty and intermittent, would go offline frequently. Bathroom was half complete. Atmosphere was horrible.
Walking distance to the heart of the city. Nice WiFi in the common areas, not so much in the bedroom. Breakfast of corn flakes and white bread with jam. Finger print lock system to the building, but our door didn't close. The room was on the main hallway, so it was noisy at night. I'm not sure why they have gender segregated bathrooms. Good kitchen facilities. The staff were very pleasant. Free luggage storage in a locked area.
