One of the best hostels in my life! The staff is incredible, very attentive and polite. The rooms are clean, quiet and you can sleep very well. The city is amazing, very beautiful and there is a lot of museums, historic sites to see... I would like to return.

Stayed for 2 nights with my partner in November 2013. Couldn't fault anything, it was easy to find, clean, warm and friendly. The breakfast was nice too - plenty for vegetarians to eat. The price was great also. They offered a cheap airport shuttle service which took the stress out of making an early flight. It's the kind of place... More
