But it's not just a great location the hostel offers, it also provides guests with a free breakfast, free WiFi and plenty more. There's also a pub on the ground floor offering affordable drinks where you can meet fellow travellers and locals alike.

    In general it was ok. The bad thing is that there are a lot of stairs and if you are carrying luggage it's a bit exhausting. And the bathrooms are not comfortable. The rest is ok. The people working there are excellent.
