    This hostel was very friendly and clean. They were a great help to me in extending my trip and i never had any problems with noise beyond what you would expect being in the city. I would highly recommend this hostel.

    It's a hostel just for sleep. In the summer is a little bit hot and really noisy. The breakfast is ok, the atmosphere and the cleaning either.
