My friends and I were sold the minute we saw this slide. Sliding down from the room corridors to the reception every morning revived the kid in me, and was a highlight of the hostel experience. Don’t worry, there are stairs too if you prefer the boring route.

This hostel is located near the Democracy Monument; a 10-minute walk from the streets where you can get your fill of roadside snacks. Otherwise, there’s a cozy living area that provides free breakfast. Other perks include free coffee and tea all day, wifi connectivity and shower amenities!
