What a lovely place. I read previous reviews so sort of knew what to expect but it was better.
We arrived after a little difficulty in finding the hostel but once there we were welcomed as if we were family visitors. After ringing the bell the owner helped to unload the car and then he took my husband to park. I booked in and was told about breakfast, being served either in our room or in one of the sitting areas around the building, then when hubby returned the owners wife helped us to our room with our bags. The room was light and airy, very efficient and quiet air con!, with simple decor and very clean. The shower in our bathroom was huge, and there was shower gel. We didn't have a bath or hair dryer but I couldn't say about other rooms.. Although only a hostel there is someone there 24 hrs so if there are any problems or requests you just need to ask, you are given a key to come and go as you please but the door is always locked so it feels very safe. The location is good for all attractions yet right in the heart of the residential old area, most of the roads are narrow and cobbled.There is a newer pedestrian shopping and eating centre minutes away best at night.
This is definitely a place to be recommended.
