  • The old city is really nice, few restaurants with few shops. You can also visit few places with beautiful panoramic view but make sure you come there before 6 as they are closing pretty soon!  more »

  • A very clean and nice hostel. Offers you excellent facilities like free WiFi and hot shower. Breakfast quality is also good.
  • a great Hostel in the heart of the old town! We stayed in the room for two! oochen' was great! wonderful owner, helped solve all arising questions on terrain orientation! The hostel were breakfasts, this pleased! I just didn't like the gas column in the soul. Well not flowing from her normal temperature water! The boiling water, then ice. I recommend to replace an electric water heater! I am in pain every day! terribly uncomfortable! but everything else is on a different level! Clean, comfortable, Interior passes the local culture! Well done! 1.
