10/10 Exceptional

We booked a double room with private bathroom, and the quality of the room was comparable or even better than a 3-star hotel. The hostel's communal areas (kitchen, bathrooms, lounge areas) were clean, cosily furnished, and very well-equipped. There was a strong personal touch to the decor, signage and overall experience. Really enjoyed our stay!
