Super nice receptionst!! I rated "poor" for security because you cannot lock your room. The hostel is bascially like a house with multiple dorms. Apart from that great and completely recommendable!! :) More

Aweesome experience! Great location! Stayed at a private room but went through the cell halls for the complete experience. Good breakfast included! Room felt dusty, but I understand it is an old building. Overall, we enjoyed our stay! More
