I hadn't stayed at a hostel since the late '70's and from my experiences then, thought I could only survive nowadays with the amenities of 3-4 star hotels. But this trip was special with our o'camping friends and our budget was tight. When I saw the photos on Hostel Shappy, I decided to be adventurous and booked there. Located off a main street, it was convenient to many shops and a short walk to the old town, the funicular and restaurants. It was very quiet probably because it is buffered by the courtyard. Our room (I think it was the romantic room) was small but oh, so clean, fresh and cozy and it even fit a TV. Love the good size shower, although the washing basin was a tad small; can't help but smile at the quirky door signs instead of room numbers. Our friends' rooms were a bit larger (green room; nature room?) but were all as new and clean. This was in October, so the courtyard was cool to hang about in, but we did play pool and have wine there one night. Front desk staff was wonderfully helpful and friendly. The hostel is equal to 4 star hotels as far as cleanliness, security, friendliness and service goes ... just smaller and less luxurious ... and definitely more fun if you venture there.
