    Unusual, amazing, with proper air conditioning! We stayed at "Double Bed in 9-Bed Mixed Dormitory", which is quite interesting & unusual way to stay in hostel if you travel like couple 🙂

    What was the most amazing, that they have policy for windows to be opened, for proper air conditioning. Guys, you won’t believe how important is that, and how many hostels get it wrong!

    That was my best sleep in the hostel ever! Highly recommended!

    PS building itself is just a piece of art

    We had one issue with the lamp by our bed not working, which appeared to be an electrical issue, as a part of the cord was damaged. The staff said that this has happened before with that bedside lamp and the only way that they could fix it was to “get under the bed and jiggle the cord around” which didn’t sound overly safe if it was a true electrical issue…

    However, they did end up fixing the lamp for us which was great, and we were able to use the luggage storage room after we checked out too! More
