Fantastic stay. Really nice not having to carry a key around, yet felt very secure. A bit far from downtown but a lovely walk! Staff were very kind and helpful and the place was very clean, and cleaned regularly. Nice breakfast options (not included.) Motion-detection lights worked great (but turned off on me in the shower haha) This is my best hostel stay this trip! Recommend!!
