Great little hostel for traveller
Really nice place to stay as a traveller. Great deals for a really nice accommodation. It’s nothing too fancy, but the staff and the atmosphere are amazing. Some of the private rooms feel very small and cramped, but it is still a great little hostel nonetheless. Great location, five minute walk to downtown.
Stayed 7 nights in Oct 2020
