    Really nice hostel 10 minutes walking from the lappa center. The hostel is pretty clean and the dorm rooms are spaceious, breakfast included, and really nice and helpful staff. The only downside is the atmosphere, which is fine and I had a nice time there with other travelers, but for lone travelers who wants to meet other people, I would recommend to check other options as well.

    In general it's a nice and clean hostel, but during my stay I sometimes thought that I'm the only guest there, there was basically nothing going on, so I would not recommend it to solo travelers who want to meet people. The included breakfast was very nice though.
