This hostel was really nicely decorated and the kitchen was very well stocked, however the shower was boiling hot and had terrible pressure. Good social areas but it was very quiet while I was there


On this location you'd expect a 4 star hotel and not a hostel like this. Its really good right on the main square of the city. Rooms are nice, bathroom and kitchen could be a little nicer but overall one of the best worth-for-the-money hostel ive ever been to. Go there!


The hostel is nice but there are few things that do not need too much effort but would do a lot to the experience travellers will have: soap in the bath/toilets, towels in the toilets/baths, better equipped kitchen (cutlery, cups, plates.... You could barely find enough for two people and everything is old, broken, dirty...), hairdryer to use, and a bit more modern bathrooms.


Nice hostel. Location is perfect. Nonetheless, facilities are pretty neglected, specially bathrooms and kitchen (kitchen equippment included). Because of its material degradation, kitchen appears dirty and untidy.

We had the room with the double windows that looked out over the square - a fantastic view! The hostel is lovely, high ceilings and floorboards. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The only problem was the bed, which was old and quite uncomfortable.
