This was a very nice hostel. Very clean, extremely nice people working there. Very helpful. very good place in the center of the city near the metro. The bad thing there was no air conditioning, however there was a ventilator - it was enough.

The pancakes for breakfast and soup for dinner, associated with some treats, make us feel... More

Stayed here with a group of friends just over a week ago. It was very clean, very homely. They often gave us free soup and pancakes in the morning. I lost my wallet while I was there and they posted it out to me. Would definitely go again!
