    I’ve had a great time during my stay at this hostel. The staff were all amazingly friendly. The travelers I’ve met during my stay were also great people. At nights the hostel was quiet and you could relax and prepare yourself for the delicious breakfast on top of the building with great view of the sea. It was almost like as if I was home. The neighborhood where Big Apple is situated is a beautiful and historic area with restaurants that serve amazing food.
