Set in a former recording studio, with some of the rooms still featuring sound-proof foam padding, Pocitosâ€™ best-value hostel has clean bathrooms, a decent breakfast and a lively bar. There are comfy common areas and a pleasant outside space, but new kitchen equipment is required. The choice of four- to eight-bed dorms and twin rooms are pretty spacious, and have big lockers big. It can get noisy at night, though, so avoid here if youâ€™re not into that sort of thing. Unplugged Hostel is also part of Hostelling International.
