Our passports were taken before we we ushered to our room in the ground floor. Nothing special to see since almost all the... More

Instructions to find the hostel from the metro station were very good, friendly, welcoming staff. The showers were amazing, huge heads. Free breakfast was a nice touch, but was just toast and butter and jam. The outside café area was nice and sociable.

A good location for tourist attractions and easy to get to via public transport and taxis. The hostel itself is really well done. Very clean! The showers are super! The breakfast was great! There's a lovely cafe next door if you what anything in the day. The staff were lovely, so helpful and kind. I'd stay here again.

The staff here are great and really helpful! The hostel itself is beautiful, big comfy beds, huge lockers, and amazing rain showers. The breakfast is the best I've had: oats or cornflakes, toast with spreads and fresh fruit! The coffee they have here is also great and there's a lovely coffee shop next door. For vegetarians like me there are... More
