The combination of elegant design and a practical lodging is unconventional, but can still win you over. Normally, so many guests pass through a hostel that everything softer than steel is worn out—and anything that survives disappears. Not so in this accommodation, where the loving attitude of the management clearly rubs off on the guests. Small catch: Because it’s somewhat off the beaten track, make sure to prepare well for excursions in the city. Making up for that is its location in the leafy southern part of the city.
