Liked: You have a kitchen to cook, the building is a beautiful old one, the rooms are alright, they clean everyday, you have Wifi and even computers for those (like me) who don´t have smartphones, it is not far from the city center in a nice area, they keep your luggage if needed and help you in all manners with informations!

Disliked: The kitchen is way too small for many people to cook at the same time and the rooms are quiet hot, although they have ventilators, because the windows are too small and don´t let fresh air in.

Liked: I liked the location across the river from the more touristy spots. It was nice and quiet, in a quaint, safe area. There was a cute little piazza near the chiesa just a couple of blocks from the hostel, where we had delicious, well priced food. Beautiful streets, great location. Was slightly hard to find, but so worth it. The staff were extremely sweet and helpful.

Disliked: It was pretty hot in our room, so we ended up propping open the door, and then slept just fine!
