    Very cozy hostel. I had comfortable bed in private room. Elevator does not stop at hostel level. You must go to 4th floor and walk down stairs to hostel one floor below. Since I am old lady who cannot carry suitcase on stairs, Lena, hostal mgr. helped me. Eugenia, staff, helped me on date of departure with suitcase and arranging taxi. They were great. Super breakfast, variety of cereal, bread, jam, etc, and fresh home make pancakes.
