Photo of Hostel Celica

“Unusual and lively hostel, popular with travellers. Its range of accommodation - double and triple rooms, and dormitories - are ideal for groups of friends. All the rooms were former prison cells, now converted into bright airy rooms with white washed walls and parquet floors. An affordable choice.”

Hotel Review

The Celica Hostel is fashioned from a former military prison and, as well as dormitories, has 17 double and three triple cells-turned-bedrooms, a few with en-suite facilities. Each one is individually designed and themed, though they all retain their original bars on doors and windows. In a converted barracks five minutes walk from the river, this is a superb place for travelers: spotless, fresh, modern and buzzing with life. Hard beds though!
