The hostel was good and staff cool. The location, excellent!! just a few minutes from a lot of attractions. Also, they have breakfast and some events every night that allow you to get involved with the other guests.

Thank you for contacting us. Our building is of an older style without an elevator and all rooms are located on upper levels. I would suggest looking at Hostels in the city centre area for a more wheelchair accessible option.
