    We stayed here one night on a layover, but I wish we could have stayed longer! A hostel with a lot of character, space, and good vibes. The staff was really helpful with printing tickets and helping us make the most of our time in the city.

    From the minute we walked through the door, this place felt like home. The reception staff, the people, the atmosphere and the location were all fantastic. It felt safe, warm, clean, welcoming and the dorm was so peaceful. We just can't stay away! Would highly recommend. Made friends for life, including the staff.

    Such a lovely hostel to stay in for our first stop off on our travels. A super chill and friendly space with lovely helpful staff. The tour led by Bruno was an amazing experience that everyone should do if they visit. Only small negative was the bedroom wasn't really cleaned in the week that we stayed there but in fairness it wasnt very unclean at this stage. Overall very good place to stay.

    Great location with friendly, helpful staff. Unfortunately not the cleanest - particularly the kitchen. The fridge, stove, cutlery and crockery weren’t properly washed, and the sponges and clothes were filthy. The common spaces could do with a wipe down as well. With a bit more attention to this, Aurora would have been 10/10.
