  • Great staff, very clean, largest hostel I've ever stayed at with a great crowd of people. The staff let me cancel my 2nd night with no issues because I had a friend in town I was going to stay with. Towels free, nice clean bedding, although beds are not that comfortable at all. Great location within walking distance from almost everything.

  • Check-in and check-out times are flexible, so no need to rush if you arrive at late night or have to depart early morning. No free internet but there is free breakfast. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to walk to the city. Overall, a nice and economic place to stay.

  • Very good hostel. Good kitchen, cool bar, helpful staff. Drawbacks: it's a 20 min walk away from downtown (the main nightlife venues), and wifi isn't free.

  • That was good to stay in this hostel. I had a good time in there. The only thing I don't like is the kitchen is too busy, but it is not a big problem. Thank you!!

Christmas doesn't get much better than wandering around a snow-coated market with a hot mulled wine in hand. The smell of roasted chestnuts and the twinkling lights will put even a Grinch into the Christmas spirit.
