    The young man at the reception was very pleasant and helpful. No complaints . Every facility that a traveller needs while on the move who is travelling on a low budget was available at this hostel, even gave us a free tram pass to get round the old town without the hassle of looking to buy tickets. Thank you , Jan and Murray Bradley.
