Cozy hostel, very well located with very friendly staff.

We stayed for a night and were able to leave our luggages for the day. Kitchen facilities are provided, bathrooms were clean and rooms were just fine.

"The rooms are in the five floor, no lift. Not recommend it at all, less when carring luggage."
"Figure on quite a few stairs ... no elevator. Shared bath. Rooms in back are very quiet, but no views."
"There isn't much of a difference"
"In city centre near train station"
"Reception is only open at select hours so check that out before heading over to check in"
US$ 43 - US$ 348 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
