We stayed at the HI City Center Hostel for 3 night in August. Overall, we were very satisfied with our trip.
The 2-bed room with private bathroom was very clean and spacious. In addition, we were positively surprised with the low noice level in the hostel.
Breakfast was simple but fine. The atmosphere in the hostel was very friendly and it offers shared locations such as a bar and a lounge area, which are quite cosy.
Only downside was the neighbourhood, which is very populated with people living on the street. While we did not encounter any incidents personally and people were generally friendly, we did observe some police activity. The hostel is about 12min walking distance from Union Square. The HI Downtown hostel may be a good alternative since it’s located right next to Union Square in a better neighbourhood. More
