    Nice, quiet hostel with excellent wi-fi, included breakfast and friendly, helpful staff and safe Central location. Not the best hostel for socialising with other travellers or partying. I feel the hostel could improve by using the common space to hold more social events for residents...More

    A great stay in a beautiful historic building. Very nicely furnished, helpful staff, secure, very clean, in short everything you could want for just $10/night! Also very close to bus routes including the airport.
