Sander The one thing this hostel is more than "cozy", is "tiny". Both the bedrooms and the living room felt really rather cramped. It's not a bad hostel at all, but on the other hand, I've stayed in much nicer (and more spacious!) hostels, so this one isn't ever going to be high up on my list of recommendations.
