Staying in Jailhouse was very unique and impressive. I slept in a fresh made bed, in a nearly original cell. The old building with it's thick walls and heavy iron doors appeared cold and scary, but the friendly staff made me feel very comfortable. The hostel is super clean and got a well organized kitchen with all utensils you need. The citypark, botanic gardens, retail stores , caffes, restaurantes and pubs are all in a walking distance of 5 - 15 minutes or just take a bike. A 'break-in' to Jalihouse Accommodation is absolutly worth it !
