The awesomely named Lazy Gaga Hostel is also host to an awesome list of amenities. They have everything you need, and then some things that you didn't even realize you needed. First, the location is terrific, as it's right in the middle of the city, just a few minutes' walk to the metro, shops, restaurants, various sites and activities, and more. You just plain can't beat this location.

Dorms and private rooms are available, including a family sized room (or a room for larger groups). Dorm bunks are custom built and are quite wide and comfortable. Dorms also have custom built lockers for bags which include power outlets inside them so you can charge your electronics while they are locked up. (How cool is that?!?) Security is also taken seriously, as the key-card access makes sure that no one gets in.

The common areas are spacious and include plenty of activities. TVs, Wii, Wi-Fi, a large communal kitchen, games, books, pool table, foosball, and more. Hot showers, laundry, bike rental, tour booking, a mini-market, 24-hour desk, and luggage storage are also on the list of amenities. Basically, this place has a lot to offer, and the friendly staff can help with anything else you need.

Guest reviews are consistently positive, as the staff does everything it can to make you feel welcome. High marks are given for cleanliness, the fun social vibe, comfort, and the perfect location in the city.

This hostel is a great option, as it is centrally located, has great amenities, and is fairly social. Being right in the middle of the city and very close to a metro station puts this hostel in a super convenient location that you can't find fault with at all.

The overall vibe of the hostel is fun and eclectic, as the wall art and furniture is fun and welcoming. Private rooms and dorms are available. Private rooms come in various sizes (including a family room). Dorm bunks have lights, outlets, and large lockers for bags which are very useful. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms.

Free Wi-Fi, and onsite restaurant and bar, and laundry are available, as is bike parking, car parking, hot showers, luggage storage, and a friendly staff to help you plan your trip.

Activities such as movie nights help keep the hostel social. The third floor terrace is a great spot to hang out and meet other travelers.

Guest reviews are consistently very good, but sometimes inconsistent due to cleanliness. The receive high marks for the location and comfort, though.
