Great but hard to find.
This is more an apartment/loft instead of a hostel, which is great for a group of people traveling. As you have the space to yourself. The place is clean and fairly comfortable. The hosts give you a lot a of great advice about the city and are very helpful if you need to book a car to the airport or train station. However it's very hard to find as there is no sign. We found it by looking at the address names on the side of the doorways. So I would suggest the owners invest in some sort of sign.

3/5 Okay

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Perfectly adequate, but area seemed a bit sketchy, told we had to triple lock to be safe. Spiral staircase was wobbly, so quite dangerous. Although an apartment for ourselves was nice and they pointed out where to go, we didn't need as a member of our group had gone before. Also not that cheap compared to other places we stayed. When checking in we were made to wait by someone who didn't speak English in the open courtyard

5/5 Excellent
