Convenient location

Guest's can't fault this hostel's location. It's right in the heart of the city's historic centre and the Cathedral and Castle are very close. Plenty of shops and restaurants can be found here too which is very convenient.

Negative Reviews

Reception sometimes closed during the day

Not so much a problem but something to be aware of to avoid inconvenience - guests report that this hostel is only open at certain hours during the day. Check in is possible from early afternoon to early evening but make sure of the precise times before arriving to avoid being too late or too early.

Many stairs to the top floor

Guests mention that it's necessary to navigate quite a few steep stairs to get to the top floor. It can be challenging for those with luggage or weary legs after a long day.
