    Superb

    30 Dec 2018
    Such a great hostel! Very homely, the staff are welcoming, and the rooms and common area very cute! In the best spot too! If I had to say one bad thing I'd just say that there's no sound-proofing to street noise, but it's an old building so that's understandable! Some ear plugs fix the issue right away anyway.

    The location is excellent!! You have everything nearby, mainly the touristic points. I stayed 2 days in a room for 4 and I didn’t have any problem! The hostel offered locker, the towel had a good price and, although simple, the breakfast was ok by the price. Cordial and friendly staff!

    Fabulous

    11 Jan 2019
    It was a great location and the cleanest hostel I’ve stayed in so far. The only downfall was that noise in the rooms echoed loudly so we weren’t able to get any sleep from people waking up and coming in at all hours. Our beds were also right where the door shut which loudly and unnecessarily slammed all morning and night.
