Overall, this hostel wasn't too bad. I thought the breakfast was really good, especially because it was on the terrace of the bar attached to the hostel. Also, the people behind the desk were extremely friendly and helpful and the hostel is close to the most interesting sights of the city. However, I thought the hostel was not too clean. The floors were really dusty and the girls' bathroom was really dirty. Perhaps that was due to the fact that there was a large group of French kids staying there and it was simply not feasable to keep the place clean. But still... Also, the hostel is attached to a bar and in the morning, there is the market close by, so that doesn't help getting a good night's sleep. I didn't mind, however, since you know about that when you book in advance. But if you need your sleep, this place might not be the best idea. And also, the bar is really crowded in the evening and you can only sit there if you order something. So, there were only a tiny living room and kitchen to hang out and no real comfy place to sit and eat your own food. I think this hostel is not bad but not the best I have been to.
