    Right in the middle of long street where the party never ends. Noisey as hell. If your looking for a party this may be for you. If your looking for sleep move on. Good location but long St is expensive

    Very very central location, perfect location! It's a nice place, good atmosphere nice place to meet people etc. Cool balcony for driving. A bar, but not that cheap for a hostel. Staff are very good and helpful Rooms are basics, but do the job!
