    Comes at a good price in a really great spot, adjacent tram has a route covering most destinations. Very casual atmosphere, no saccharine commercial vibe. Highly recommended if looking for something different from the typical bustling city hostel.More

    I left my bags in the luggage room a few months back when we arrived early. It was crowded but we didn't have any problems finding enough room. I wouldn't worry about it too much.
