    Hostel was clean and nice in a great location, however, it was a bit difficult to have 10 people share 1 bathroom. Kitchen area in back or the lounge up front were great places to hang out and meet new friends.

    I had a very pleasant stay at this hostel. Though a bit more expensive than the regular hostels somewhere else in Europe, it was worth the price. Nice facilities, clean and very useful staff at any time of day and night. Thank you.
