The hotel has a lovely shared space (living room with TV and DVDs), and a great, clean kitchen, where they offer all sorts of teas and coffee for free all day. The room was spacious, clean, and cozy. Also, the bathroom was clean and with a hot shower.... More

Other than that the hostel is great, nice kitchen, nice rooftop area as well as an open air area on the top floor with a pool table w/tables and... More
