This website let me to do a flexible booking paying 1 euro extra, which allows me to make a cancelation some days in advance (depending the accommodation policies) and the deposit already charged (use to be a 10% or 15%) remains in your Hostelworld account, available for the next 6 months.

We have founded this place by chance while walking. They have a wide array of diverse sandwiches for around 6 dollars each. The total price of the dinner was around 10 dollars.
