Very clean, good free breakfast.
I stayed one night at the hostel and very much enjoyed it. The staff were welcoming and helpful, everything was clean and new. The location is good for a walk into the old town and quite easy to find. I paid for the hostel dinner which was really good, and a free breakfast is always a good thing! I would recommend this hostel.
