Exceptional 10.0
Great hostel!
I was only here for a night, but I enjoyed my stay. The place was very clean, and I was able to store my bag at the front desk until check-in at 4pm. Staff were friendly and helpful. My shared dorm room was clean and had no noise issues at night. Felt very safe and secure as a key card is required to enter the hostel at night and to access the upper floors anytime. The place is within walking distance of many attractions. One of the best hostels I've stayed at. I would definitely stay again!
