Would Come Back for Sure!
I highly recommend this hostel for a stay to enjoy the city. We only needed one night, but for a family of 5 who always needs 4 sleeping spaces, this was perfect and much more affordable and we would stay again no problem. Friendly staff, nice accommodations and good amenities.
