    The hostel is in an old courtyard which is quaint but it was very damp and there was a fair amount of mould around. The dorm room with an ensuite didn't smell great and the bikes for rent were flat so we had to take them to another hostel outside the old town to use their pump. The staff were helpful however and they put on the football for us. There's also free tea.
