    Despite arriving super late at night due to other hostel troubles they still worked hard to find us a place. All the staff were lovely and good kitchen facilities.

    Stayed here for one night after sailweek and the dude could tell I looked rough so he offered to make my bed at 10 am 😂 Really nice hostel, tall ceilings, beds were comfy and everyone was super friendly. Also a good view of the sunrise in the morning. Also love a place with lockers and free towels.

    The staff at Old Town hostel are incredibly helpful and friendly. The hostel has 2 single bathrooms (a toilet, sink, and shower in each). I never had to wait to use one. The rooms are clean and the beds are pretty comfortable. There is a locker for each person in the room. The hostel is on the third floor, so if you have mobility issues this could be a problem. The hostel is in a great location, inside the Palace walls no more than a few minutes walk to the Riva and close to many restaurants.

    The hostel is located in the centre of the old town and has a very chill atmosphere. Really enjoyed my stay the one con was that the front door of the hostel is always open and people staying brought random people back to the shared dorm. Would stay again but not as a solo female traveler.

    Nice enough place. Door to hostel and door to room stayed unlocked the whole time, but the provide lockers which might be able to fit some packs/suitcases (not mine). Good aircon. Helpful staff. Facilities like being at home - a little tired but still work fine. Location is great.

    Though staff were friendly and the location was absolutely great, I would not stay here again. The room for four people was way to small for anyone to even move around and the top bunk for a bed didn’t have a railing to safe guard the sleeper from rolling off in their sleep. Beds were also not comfortable at all but the staff tried to accommodate in ways they can.

    Great location and awesome staff. The rooms are pretty cramped, and the communal bathrooms/kitchen could definitely use a clean. However, overall a decent place to be.

    The staff were lovely and the hostel is in a great part of old town. The facilities accurately reflected the description of this hostel on hostel world too. In saying that, often the reception was left unattended which was difficult at times. Overall I think the hostel was a little expensive for the facilities provided, but made up for this due to its location. I’d highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for somewhere central with decent enough facilities.
