    Very close to city centre, a joyfull atmosphere and very friendly people. Of course, you have to be slightly open-minded if you're willing to go to a place like this, but if you don't mind sharing rooms, I'd definetely suggest this place.

    Would recommend this central location hostel. It feels more like a hotel with dorm rooms. No self-catering facilities and quite formal bar/ lobby layout therefore loses points if you're looking for a laid back travelling vibe.More
