    I really felt welcome at the Hostel. All the stuff was fun and helpful at any time. Also it is a nice, small place and this gave me a feeling of home. The Hostel was always clean. And I liked that you could have breakfast at any time. There wasn't a...'breakfast goes till 9:30' Would definitely stay there again.
