    This hostel was a bit difficult to find without asking the locals, the directions mention SECC which is actually always labeled "Exhibition Centre". The "hostel" itself is very nice, offering everyone affordable and well-equipped private rooms. The location was not ideal, it's situated at the furthest "walkable" point from downtown, where you'll want to spend your time. Separate kitchens make it hard to meet ppl. Hop-on / Hop-off stop is a short walk away. A good hostel to recharge.
