  • Is it quiet at night?

    Hi! Since we mainly have young people, we tend to have a great atmosphere, where people share listening to music and having some drinks during the day and afternoon, but at night we tell people to respect othe people's sleep. We have schedules for music and alcohol (00:30/01:00 am max.). We are very concerned about silence at night, so people can rest and have a great time in our hostel. Kind regards!
