    This hostel is very quirky, with circus props everywhere! Everyone was SUPER friendly, and everything was very clean. They even had organic eggs you could buy in the morning! A very nice place to spend the night.

    Uhm it is a quiet long walk. Takes you probably 20min by walking... But I'd say it is worth it. You can try to ask them to pick you up, but I think they don't do it normaly.
