If you’re arriving by air and have not yet booked accommodation, keep in mind that touts at the shuttle-bus drop-off points may get you discounted rooms at a wide selection of hotels.

All hostels in the city offer similar services, including bike hire, wi-fi, laundry, restaurant and travel services. Ask about free pick-up from the train station and book ahead at popular places. In low season (January to March) you can usually get 20% off at hostels.
