We had a wonderful time at Umbrella. The double rooms are on the top floor which is somehow more quiet. We also noticed that the bathrooms there were cleaner than on the ground floor. The decoration was great and the staff was always very helpful and friendly.

Great hostel, they've considered everything a traveller needs and there are plenty of great social spaces to meet people in. I particularly liked the side yard/courtyard, although it can't be used late at night.
