OK so my check in was a little all over the place, I was expecting to be greeted by Marius, but no word from him. It didnt matter, someone answered the hostel so I dropped my bag off and headed off for the day.
When I came back I checked in, I cant remember the guys name! but he was lovely. Gave me a map and showed me everything I needed to know, sights, shops, tours etc. So helpful and friendly!
The hostel itself is in a great location, 5 min walk into the heart of the old town and 15 min walk to Palace of Parliament. Its a beautifully decorated place, and is spotless clean, they seem to get a cleaner in everyday. Other bonuses about the place, free towels, laundry facilities, excellent wifi, and a handy little App on the computer that when you press a button, a taxi gets called to collect you from the hostel downstairs.
One thing to point out is there are only 2 bathrooms, but I found that one or the other was generally free. Also the hostel is on the 6th floor, which was alot of excercise for me. There is an elevator, but it just freaked me out! :)
Anyway if your looking for somewhere with perfect location, thats clean and has friendly hosts then this is the spot.
