Excellent place, it really felt more like a hotel! Everything is new and shining, but the hostel remains very cozy. Little details - like different tyypes od też in the kitchen, a number od books and guidebooks make it feel more like home.


Love this place! Very clean rooms, showers and kitchen facilities. Great for socializing over breakfast/dinner too. Didn't see a laundry room but there was a drying room in case we need to dry our items from the rain. Staff was helpful and polite, and also gave me a visitor slip for parking near by.
