City Central International Hostel

Hands down one of the best places I have stayed at. Clean, planned, properly managed, value for money!! The bar is good and so is the menu with a lot of options for vegetarians. The restaurant and bar could do with more staff, specially on busy nights. But that is nothing to complain about.

Great hostel overall - large communal areas with bar, food, pool table etc. Close to underground transport connections.
On the negative side - our room smelt as a result of previous guests smoking and the decor was a little tired.

I was very satisfied staying in this youth hostel, probably the biggest one I've ever been to. Loved the cereals for breakfast, the room was nice, air con was working well, bathrooms were clean, whatever I needed was available there. Location may not be the best, but it's very close to the subway station which I used most of the time to go anywhere.

Hostel is very easy to find but not quite near to the People's Square. Friendly and helpful staff, ready to guide you on the directions to places of interest. Hostel is very clean and the facilities are good (remember to bring your own small locker as they do not provide/rent). Great breakfast too! I love the cereals! Please continue to keep up and provide excellent service to future travellers!
