The best place for backpackers (especially women)

I recommend this place honestly! The staff is so friendly, always smiling and helpful...nice views and the museum is like 5 mins walking (literally). The girls are so sweet, honest and genuine! They always try to make you feel comfortable which I really appreciated it ;) I’ll be back in December and I’ll definitely stay there again..!!

Perfect hostel in central location

Welcomed by very friendly staff. Made me feel at home as soon as I arrived. My taxi driver couldn't find it even with Google maps but don't let this put you off. It's really easy to find. Located in an entrance door between 2 cafes that do good tea at cheap price. Room was immaculate. I've stayed in many hostels and this one is like something out of a home catalogue. Very modern and perfect. Has a balcony over looking the main square. I couldn't thank the staff enough for making me feel welcome in a strange country and making the start of my solo travels a little easier. If you want good homely atmosphere stay here. Mira is a very friendly hostess even tho our conversation mainly used google translate her english is good.
