Ich habe in einem gemütlichen 4-Bed-Dorm mit eigenem Bad übernachtet, das zum Innenhof herausging. Stabile, ruhige Holzbetten. Das Bad würde jeden Tag geputzt. Aufgrund der Art und Weise wie das Hostel aufgebaut ist kommt man gut in Kontakt mit anderen Reisenden. Abends war es dennoch immer früh genug ruhig. Morgens gab es ein nettes Frühstück. Die Stadt an sich ist sehr hübsch.
