Cheap hostel in the historic center, location is great but the building isn't exactly new. Really helpful staff and not a bad breakfast.

Overall hygiene could be...

I stayed two nights in a private bedroom, which was in between the stairs and a hallway and therefore noisy. It does bot have airconditioning, so is also quite hot with only the fan. My average score is mostly about...

We stayed here for 6 nights and met three very nice girls working in the Hostel and taking care of all. It's located directly in the old town with not that much rooms what gives it a familiar flair. Breakfast is okay, rooms are clean and the price was totally fair.

I was there a tuesday night, it was great, they have an access by the balcony to the show down the street. Everyone was so nice with me. It is the best place to enjoy all the historical center has to offer.
