    Great hostel. Very friendly, but also relaxed. The owners are very helpful if you need anything and it feels very homey. There are three well stocked kitchens with ovens which was a big plus. Close enough to everything that you can walk, but not too loud at night, which was great! I would definitely stay again if I had the chance!
