A welcome change from the usually sterilized experience of staying at a "YHA". This place seemed to be an older property, but had nice rooms which were both comfortable and affordable. The kitchen area was functional and the back courtyard was a great place to hang out and get to know fellow travelers in a few common areas. Free internet was a great help as well. Our first night was spent in a 6-share dorm room out back, which had the same bunk-style beds found in most YHAs, We then switched to a double room to get to bed early, and it was lovely and quiet, overlooking the street. When we woke each morning, it appeared that the kitchen and bathrooms had been freshly cleaned. This beautiful character home was a relaxing setting to unwind and recharge. Be sure to admire the beautifully-carved tables and benches in the courtyard!
