    Absolutely loved this hostel. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I worked remotely from the window nook and the view was really nice. Wifi was pretty good. The hostel is super clean. The kitchen is well equipped (even so far as spices, olive oil, etc). The bed area I liked a lot — the curtains really made the pods feel private + the USB and light in each bunk was nice. Will 100% be staying here again if I return.

    Very central location, individual pods are nice, almost wraparound. As private as it gets in a shared room. Also long enough for me to stretch out (6ft). Bring your own soap/shampoo, and perhaps a torch as well.

    This is my second time staying in this hostel, and wow I had a blast! Maira and Aurelia were AMAZING! Such sweet girls, hard workers and you could tell just how much they cared about the hostel, fostering a warm and inviting environment and just the general pride in their contribution! Whatever they're being paid, double it! I enjoyed my trip the first time, but this one was really special. I feel like the girls went above and beyond to take care of me and everyone there. I can't rave enough!

    I stayed in one of the private rooms and it felt like a hotel to me! The room was great, bathrooms were very clean and modern. The security of these rooms was great, with an almost secret entrance and multiple locked doors. Kitchen was also very clean and well stocked with appliances. Location is right next to the castle with multiple restaurants nearby.
