Staff are very friendly, and the cooked breakfast each morning is amazing. The interior is gorgeous, and there is air conditioning, wifi, and free laundry. They have very nice private rooms (where I stayed) in... More

This central, cheap and friendly hostel is highly recommendable. We had a standard double room with a comfortable bed, and with the bathroom just outside in the hallway. The staff is friendly, and the breakfast excellent.

We spend most the time working hard in the "fields", so late evening or night or even early moment we went back to the hostel to sleep. Every time we have warm shower, dishes to eat (even our national Ukrainian dishes).... More

This hostel is just great in every aspect. Points to highlight are its proximity to the city centre, the original design and the fantastic staff working there. When booking at some of the largest networks of hostels in Europe, I haven't seen the comfort that Rafael Hostel provide for their guests. Instead of using the space for additional beds and... More

Rafael Hostel is a great place. Dorms are clean with good bathroom facilities. Breakfast is included and very tasty. Coffee and tea are for free all day long. So, I'd say that's ample reason to go there. However, what makes Rafael Hostel really stand out to me are the beauty of the central interior (one of the best looking hostels... More

Rafael's a very fancy Hostel to a reasonable price. When entering the hostel it feels like entering a villa. The living room is huge and spacious and also the kitchen provides more than enough space to prepare everything you want. It's fully equipped. More than one time I was invited by the lovely staff of the hostel to have dinner... More
