The only drawback for me is that it has no elevator, but the staff helped me with my bag. It was a lovely place.

I had a pleasure to stay in Old Town Hostel for over 4 days with group of my friends. Location is just perfect if you are planning to visite some clubs and pubs at Main Square. Also ver close to trains station. Rooms are not to fancy, but clean and practical. For such a low price it was just perfect!... More

I was really surprised! The Old town hostel should be recommended to everyone who wants to sightsee a lot. Main square is not far away, as well as bus/train station. Beds and bathrooms were ok. I'd say, I liked everything about the place.
