I like the location of this hostel, it was close to all the different places that we wanted to visit. Showers were not very clean. Plus a weird situation at midnight with a random girl who knocked our door asking us to let her sleep in our room.

8/10 Very good

Only minus was that we are in our late 70s, and they put us in 225, which entailed lots of stairs.
