          Do not trust in the photos! The unique good thing about this hostel is the location, Room: terrible! Bed: terrible! Bathroom: disgusting! Staff: not friendly. Definitely, I do not recommend this hotel and I would not stay there again!

          With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
          stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
