    Sad to post low score. Views from hostel are amazing. Beautiful area. I'd give the highest rank, except that taxis don't want to go there. Getting back MAJOR problem. No one knows where it is, drivers don't know the street, too far, they hate cobblestone roads. Will be lucky to get a taxi on your 5th try. TAKE PRINTED INSTRUCTIONS with you! Staff not very welcoming, some warmed up later. Front desk girl (black hair) was amazing! Hide valuables, Item stolen from room. Great local bars.
