I will start off by saying that we booked a separate room and were using it less of a hostal and more as a b & b. To this extend it was well worth it and as we, not having tried doing this before. The only draw back for the older person and or less mobile was the number of steps to the top floor otherwise it would suit all ages using the hostal this way. Kitchen facilities available to 10.30 p.m.and ready supply of tea / coffee and toast with jam / marlade for breakfast, although if it is busy finding somewhere to seat and obtaining mugs/plates could be a problem as the venue is rightly so popular. I must admit that the shared bedrooms did not appear to be so well maintained.
Well centred for getting around the city and there are ways of not using the steps to access the bilding if you head for the Church and go back down the Road/Walk. Don't Look for the recommended Gold fish in order to locate the building as it is not as clear as the "bauble " on the Church Tower.
The only gride was that we weren't given the option to pay on a credit card in euros but they automatically converted it to pounds which in our case madfe it slightly more expensive but none the less value for money. My ratings reflect our use as a b &.b.
