Liked: The hostel was wonderful and the service was even better. The hostel has character and is a family run business so the staff are always available and it is always the same front desk people that you can talk to. They will help you with anything and everything that you need. The owner even came down and helped me buy a book and some postcards from the book sellers set up near the hostel. Hostel is in a very central location and the hostel staff will tell you about any free discounts, exhibitions or tours that are going on. Breakfast is free and they have more selection than most hostels. Definitely a great stay and one to come back to!!! La meilleure auberge de jeunesse... la place est propre et les employees sont supers!!! El mejor hostel.... los empleados son increibles y el lugar es bien bonito!!!

Disliked: Nothing. I was very satisfied with my stay!!!

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay at Nightingale Hostel - the staff really made me feel at home. The location is perfect: right in the centre and close to most stores, markets, restaurants, bars, sights, etc. It is convenient to walk everywhere. I will try to reorganize my travel schedule to come back and stay longer.

Liked: good location, common room is not bad, free computer

Disliked: old and rundown place, toilets are very stinky, for us there was a man in our dorm who made the whole room stink up (but of course its not the hostels fault), although there's free breakfast but it starts really late maybe 8 plus?

27 August 2010 Eva would recommend this property

Liked: Above all the staff, incredibly friendly. There is a living room with an amazing plasma television which you can use to see films (you can choose the one you want from a whole collection) if you don`t want to go out at night, for example. Also we loved the kitchen, but as I`ve said, the staff is what makes that hostel your home.

Disliked: Nothing.
