The rooms are ok and the beds could be a bit more solid, especially for the one that has to climb on the upper bed. The overall atmosphere of the hostel is super nice and makes it a great stay as a whole. A roof terrace, several places to sit in tranquility and decent internet. The hostel is located just a couple of minutes walking from the old city center as well as the bus/boat-terminal
Friends recommended Room nr.1 because it's kind of isolated from the rest of the hostel. It was indeed really different with a view on the street (from the first floor) but in the night it was necessary to ring the bell to go to the toilet.
All in all it was a great way to recharge and I definitely would recommend it to everyone!
