We got a private twin bedroom at this hostel. The room was alright, but the best part of this hostel is the homey feel. I reckon this hostel was a converted flat. There seems to be about 5 rooms of different sizes.There is a living room in the middle of the hostel and a kitchen. Lots of people hung out in the living room which was very cozy! the reception is 24 hours so it feels safe and your stuff feels safe as well. The toilets are cleaned regularly which was great! Be sure to try the lemonade at the jewish hummus bar just downstairs to the right.
One thing that was difficult was the sign of the hostel is very very small. So just look out for the green and yellow sign selling sandwiches which is just next door. We took a taxi from the airport taxi stall (which is recommended as they give a set price instead of getting ripped off by random taxis!) to this area, and he pointed out the hostel to us.
There is a 24 hour convenience store on the left downstairs where you can get shampoo and body gel. And snacks too.
But the best best part of this hostel is the location, its literally a few seconds away from the St steven's basilica, so the area feels safe at all times, isn't too noisy as is away from the main highway, and is just a nice place to be!!!
Metro was just a short walk, located behind the basillica across the road!
hope you have a nice stay!
