The location was incredible, you could go walking wherever you want, the train is just 1 minute walking, you have markets so near and souvenirs' shops too. The rooms are typical but the beds are so comfortable but it was a little cold in my room.

Would highly recommend! Close to bus station to access airport and within walking distance to main shopping area. My private double room was like a hotel room. Hostel was clean and offered great service.

The only downfall of the hostel was the bathroom situation. I stayed in a...

Excellent service and location. Rooms are clean and the security is very good. The staff is always there to help with problems and also to advice you about transport, etc. Breakfast is varied and tasty. Overall, a really good experience. The cards may fail sometimes but they are easily replaced.
