Hidden away under the sign 'Viola', behind an unassuming brown door, is the Posh Backpackers hostel.
Restrictions on adaptations to buildings in this particular area of the historic old town mean the lack of signage make it a little more difficult to find than some, but it is worth making the effort to seek out this clean, affordable and safe hostel.
In an industry where bodies in beds is often the driver, it's welcoming to see that the walls between the rooms at Posh are more solid than at some establishments - so you won't have to share your private conversations with those on the other side of a plaster and tissue barrier. Privacy is boosted still further by free wi-fi, meaning guests can check their emails and so on from their own rooms rather than using public areas.
There's no need to bring your own bed linen, or to worry about where to park the car, late arrivals or late check-outs, as Posh has all of these points covered. You don't need to self cater for beer or coffee either, as both are available at this hostel.
Posh offers a 'problems solved fast or your money back' guarantee - but finding anything wrong will be a problem in itself.
