    • This hostel is very multicultural, with several hostellers stayng here as workers. The layout of the ground floor is excellent for the variety of spaces to allow guests to socialise, or not. With many tables in the dinng area, several lounges in a TV room, a games room for playing table tennis or pool, and more than one outside space, it's easy to find a place to do whatever you want.
