Fantastic
great stay!

this was my first hostel, the warm welcome, the nice staff, the other travelers are very kind, It's a small hostel (8 rooms to break everything) and I must say that I prefer it to the big hostel like the other than I could do, the small space promotes meetings with people, I saw people of all ages and various nationalities, a very good experience, (located in the city center and more)
