    Very nice place located in a pretty street. Really easy to get to the metro station. The hostel is very clean and the staff friendly. After a bad experience in an other hostel we felt great there :-) The only negative thing is that we could hear the neighbors’ Tv from our room. Never the less we still recommended !
