    Perfect location in the city centre. I could go everywhere easily by walking Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was ok. Recommended for short stays.

    The WiFi connection was not good throughout the building, even in the hostel's cafe Bathrooms and toilets sometimes can be dirty. It was challenging to go up using the narrow stairs with suitcases

    In general it was great. The staffs were very nice, kind and helpful. Location was good. You can go everywhere easily by walking. They have a fridge and microwave in the kitchen. if you don't have plate for microwave and fork, spoon to eat you can borrow it from restaurant and you can eat your own food there.

    The bathrooms were too small and sometimes it can be dirty.

    All is conform at the photo. Staff are available and take care of client. All the room except our was great.

    Only one problem. It's an hostel, one person smell very bad and it was impossible to stay in this room more than 2 minutes. The hostel was full so we ask to cancel the others night and the hostel refund us. A bad experience for us but it's just a bad luck.
