Liked this place enough. Really beautiful old building with a nice common area. Bathrooms were clean and kitchen was decent. Lots of kids around 10-12 running around screaming and jumping on stuff with no supervision so that was something i didn’t enjoy. Overall a decent vibe

Staff were very friendly. The bed sufficed. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm that actually had 5 beds in it. That didn’t bother me, I’m just not sure why they’d lie about it. The building itself is beautiful from the outside but everything looks pretty tired on the inside. The laundry costs about the same as every other hostel and the kitchen was relatively clean. Not particularly social at all. If you need a bed and no more then it’s fine, but be aware you have to make it up yourself on arrival.
