Nice place
This was my second stay at this hostel and I was glad to be back! People here are friendly and kind. The only one thing I don’t like about this hostel is bed. Mattress is ok but every time you make a move on the bed, and no matter how small it is, it makes a squeaky sound and it is loud. Even college dorm room has better one.
