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.
