The hostel was very clean, and the rooms spacious. The bunks had real mattresses, and there was enough room to sit up in the bottom bunk. The bathrooms were on the small side. The full kitchen and court yard where very nice!

“We stayed in the private double with bathroom and were positively surprised by a tv with dvd and a collection of movies that helped to survive a lazy, rainy afternoon. Windows came out to the street and you could here the cars but it was OK. Big wardrobe and nice bathroom make this room excellent for longer stays.”
