I like this hostel. It's really clean, and the staff are nice. It's just off the centre which personally I also like, but only about 3 or 4 minutes walk from the Metro. It is a bit difficult to find and I couldn't see a map on their website.

“We stayed in a double room with twin beds. The room is small, but the beds are very comfortable and spacious. Of the minuses only poor soundproofing. The rooms are all equally comfortable, but it is better to choose a single or double room.”
