Hostel was large and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was rather chaos as there were a lot of busses at the time. Other than that it was quite peaceful and an easy place to stay for a night.


The hostel is very well-equiped and I totally recommend it. The only drawback is the distance to the main touristic places in the city, with the exception of the Zoo, which is quite close.


Despite the lack of Wifi (had to pay 1 euro for an hour of wifi) and water coolers, breakfast was great, bathrooms were clean and spacious!
