"Cosy Hostel with a fantastic host! The stay here was 100% worth it the little detour from the rota vicentina. The hostel offers everything you need and has many thoughtful details. You can even get a nice breakfast for a very fair price and can enjoy a great dinner/drink at the restaurant close by."
