Stayed in PILOT Hostel for four nights and five days with a friend. What we're looking for in a hostel is usually a mixed group of fellow visitors, a fun atmosphere that doesn't feel like it's forcing you to participate in every single hostel event, clean beds & bathrooms and some friendly personnel who don't mind sharing a few tips...

First of all, it's a discreet front and difficult to find! But the inside is very confortable, we had a nice acommodation, we shared room with other people and we had no problem at all. Staff was attentive, but we couldn't find them all the time. The prices are very good!

Pilot Hostel gives you more than the regular hostel. Especially perfect when travelling alone! Participating in the free walking tour through the city is a good opporunity to meet new people, so is the dinner at the hostel (€5) and the free shots every night at 10pm! It's a design hostel (&bar) so it looks really nice, and the couches... More

I found this option on Hostelworld, but I prefer to make reservation by e-mail because they offer you the breakfast for a couple of euros more and it's a good buffet. The hostel's location is really good and you can see all the historical part of the city on foot. Transportation is not an option if you love to walk... More
