It's in a safe neighbourhood, but relatively far from all the sights. The hostel is also a home (of the owners) so at times we felt like we were infringing on their privacy and overstaying our welcome. Also they have a beautiful kitchen, but you're not allowed to use it since it's theirs (this is the first hostel I've ever encountered where you can't cook). The owners also weren't very outgoing or helpful, though they were nice. Clean place & awesome decor/artwork, 2 adorable dalmations. Quiet.
