Take a cab there if you have heavy bags....
After trecking up hill in the hot mid day sub with my havey back pack for what felt like forever, i was pleasently surprised with the hostel, it has a huge terrace with a great view and you can buy buys and wine from the reception, which is much apprecaites after the trek up there! We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom which was clean and well maintained. We were only there one night but could have happily stayed longer. The hostel had a friendly vibe and there were a few people around around still even though we were entering in to low season. I wasnt a solo traveller but could see that this was a good place if i had have been there alone. We didnt stay for breakfast as we had an early flight but it lookes good and you are able to use the kitchen to make the eggs (which are provided by the hostel) in what ever way you want, which is a nice touch. If you book here and do have bags make sure you als the hostel for directions and they will let you know how to get there via an city elavtor rather than climb many many mnay steps and hills (and i mean many!) Staff were a mized bag, one person on reception was super friendly, the one the next morn seemed like she couldnt really be arsed to be there. Over all though a good place to stay in the old town and near loys fp afes and bars that feel leas of a tourist trap than in other areas.
