The hostel is located two minutes from the center of the old town and has plenty of nice restaurants nearby. The hostel itself is very clean and the dorm rooms are very roomy. The one common room is cozy. It wasn't very sociable place, although the staff was really friendly and helped you with all your needs.

Very big rooms, friendly staff, there is everything you need. Small price, in particular if you think about the position and the service. You cannot find a hostel better than this for the same price. 10+

Room, six bed mixed, very cramped, but there were never more then four of us at one time; would NOT recommend this accommodation unless your group would book the entire dorm, on the other hand that might end up having you split-up; all of the faculty was clean but the 1st floor shower room had the very distinct odor of...
