Good value
Safestay hostel has a friendly, helpful staff. Its in a good location with supermarkets, shops, cafes, postal mailing center and sights within a 10 minute walk. We stayed in the family room on the 3rd floor. The room was clean and spacious but the bathroom is tiny and the shower water was lukewarm. We did not have any problems with noise at night during our midweek stay. Breakfast was good with a variety of beads, meats, cheese, cereal juice, coffee, tea and yogurt.
