    I wouldn't go back to this hostel. First, you don't even realise you are in a church, since they refurnited everything in a way to hide the that you are in a church. But since it still is a church the dorms have only windows to the hallway which means that you hear even the guy across the hall snoring or the drunken girl getting back at 4am. Showers were disguting plastic boxes which were really not clean. And well, the location doesn't make up to all this.
