I chose this hostel because many reviews said people stayed here for months and were comfortable. But I was definitely not comfortable. I was in a 4 person room with very little space to put my stuff since three others were living there. No lockers. Just very cramped in general, the kitchen too. I did not want to cook there. The wifi only works in the kitchen. The staff was not really friendly. So: pick another hostel, there are so many really nice ones just around the corner!


Best backpack ever the rooftop wiew its amazing like the free breakfast and the atmosphere.


wifi is only in the ground floor.
