Using more signs to find the hostel would be more helpful. The staff was nice and helpful (speak English). The accommodation was appropriate and clean. The breakfast wasn't very big: rolls, jam, butter, cereal, coffee and orange juice (but I didn't expect much for the price that we were paying). There wasn't much to do in the hostel besides playing chess so I would recommend installing a billiard table or a fussball table. Overall we had a good experience and I would recommend going there.
