Having stayed at a St Christopher's in Paris, this hostel is like the ugly, old and undesirable uncle that no one likes to see.

Beautiful old building with the most charm I have ever seen built into a hostel. The food at Belushi's was outstanding and affordable. Activities were plentiful and the staff was helpful, friendly, and willing to hang out with this old man. Classy establishment with an amazing staff.

“4 bedroom ensuite highly recommended. Ask for room 45/46 which both have a good view over the city. Plus they are quieter with less noise.”
