Adorei, recomendo!
O hostel é bem simples, porém bastante limpo e organizado. As funcionárias são muito simpáticas e acolhedoras. O café da manhã é bem saboroso e feito com muito carinho. Fica bem próximo à cidade amuralhada, poucos minutos andando (dá pra ver a torre do relógio, que fica no fim da avenida).

Muy cerca de los sitios de interés
El cuarto estaba limpio y comodo. El hostal una azotea muy agradable para tomar una cerveza y tiene bar. No habia ruido. El personal es amable y dispuesto a dar informes sobre las excursiones y sitios de interés. No hay agua caliente pero no es necesario por le calor. Queda muy cerca la ciudad amurallada y el castillo.
