We stayed here for 2nights. Love the location of the hostel, ut is right next to the river and walkable distance to the city center. The rooms were good. However, the rooms can be dusted more. The staff was friendly ^^

Its an OK hostel. It's clean and close to everything. Minus: no soap even just to wash your hands. Cold and since there is no mosquito net on the windows, there was so many bugs and I got stung all night.

It’s a beautiful place to stay for a night or two, yet I wouldn’t say that the hostel was social, and, was definitely very cold, as it is in an old building. I stayed in the beginning of November, and had to sleep with my clothes on - that cold! Otherwise, it is very nice!
