Think good location, comfort and friendly staff. Read on to find out what Spot Cozy Hostel has to offer!

A comfy place close to the center

Spot Cozy Hostel started operations in November 2014 and have managed to turn a 1920s house into one of the coziest places you’d want to be. Everything from the painted decorations inside the house, to the artsy collage of old magazine clips, the lamps and the lovely backyard, gives you the feeling of hanging out at your friend’s house rather than an accommodation spot away from home.
