The Old Town Hostel reception is only a short walk from the train station. The reception is a cosy place with pub-character. There is a possibility to wash (unfortunately the machine was broken while we were staying there).
We stayed in a separate apartment with others (but private room), which was also a short walk from the Old Town Hostel but still right in the city center. The staff walked us there and was in all quite helpful and friendly. They apologized again and again for the washing machine not working =)
The apartment and the room itself was really nice, above the usual hostel standard. It was clean and very modern.
