The passion behind the meaning of the name is evident; have a read of this piece of their short poem if you don’t believe us:

In fact, moving is a phenomenon of traveling.

The nature of traveling, is defining.

Alongside the well-designed name, the Center Center hostel offers a relaxing atmosphere in a traditional-style building.

Upon arrival you will be greeted by a space specifically designed for travelers, by travelers.

The hostel is delightfully decorated and refurnished and the mixed dorms provide perfect opportunity to mingle with other like-minded folk.
