Muy buen albergue, tranquilo y cerca a todo. A dos calles de Gran Bazar y a tres calles de Santa Sofía. A media cuadra está el tranvía. Muy limpio y excelente personal de la recepción. Valdría la pena cambiar el equipamento de las habitaciones, las mesas, lámparas y TV son de los 80´s. El lobbie y el comedor son modernos y funcionales, pero falta modernizar las habitaciones. Valdría la pena el Wiffi en las habitaciones y no solo en las zonas sociales. VOLVERIA A ESTE HOSTAL, ME GUSTÓ MUCHO :)
