The Cosmopolitan's proximity to two supermarkets and two main avenues with many bus stops make it the most ideal and convenient choice for visitors.

    Cosmopolitan Hostel is located close to many restaurants, a supermarket and a bus stop. I really enjoyed my stay, but unfortunately I had to change bed three times since they had removed my name from the bed I was sleeping twice. I'd say pay more attention to this details. In general it was great!

    Didn't enjoy the beds so much, but as we were really tired it was good to sleep. The best thing about this place is, that they have bunnies that can walk freely inside the hostel :)

    I chose this hostel because of the pool but unfortunately the picture didn’t reflect reality. I stayed 5 days. The pool was very dirty and unusable my entire stay - looked more like a pond! The staff are (mostly) very friendly and there are plenty of them though there is no effort to arrange activities for guests and so the place lacks atmosphere. Laundry facilities really mean a sink where you can hand-wash. When I pointed out that I thought this was misleading I was asked to leave the hostel.
