Hello, I had a good stay at the hostel. My first comment would be about the doors, they are so heavy to open and close and therefore make so much noise! It was a little hard to wake up and fall asleep with all this movement. It would be nice to have an individual light too in the dormitory, as reading or preparing ourselves in the morning was difficult without waking everybody up. Finally, it would nice to have ashtrays outside. But it was a good stay, cheap even compared to Airbnb. Thank you! Ina
