Honing in on a trendy industrial vibe, this hostel has cool street art, bathrooms with clean lines, and simply decorated rooms that are damn near spotless. Dorms are booked in four-, six-, or eight-bed configurations, so things never get too busy or noisy at night. Private rooms are available, too, but they use the communal bathrooms. The hostel operates a coffee shop and bakery (which are worth a stop even if you’re not staying there) so there’s always a crowd of people to mingle with and swap travel tips.
