This youth hostel is one of the biggest and
busiest in the world. With a 98% year-round occupancy rate, you'll have to book early to
secure a place. Opened in 1987 in a historic 9-story building, it offers far more than
standard basic accommodation. In the basement is the Scu Bar, a very, popular drinking
hole with pool tables and occasional entertainment. There's also a bistro selling cheap
meals, a convenience store, two fully equipped kitchens, and an entertainment room with
more pool tables and e-mail facilities, TV rooms on every floor, and an audiovisual room
showing movies. If you want more, try the heated swimming pool and the sauna! Rooms are
clean and basic. The YHA is completely accessible to travelers with disabilities.
