No backpackers atmosphere... I was there for a weekend and saw nobody apart from the staff. Common area is small, there's no lockers inside the dorms. Bathroom inside the room is fair. Good value in comparison with the rest of hostels, but there are cheaper guesthouses around

It was pretty grimy, but definitely not that bad. Location was perfect for me, right on the edge of the historical section.

The location was brilliant - right in the central - but very expensive for what it was!!! The breakfast was just toast butter and jam, and it cost 16 euros a night!!! But the bathroom was very good - included a shower, bath, toilet and everything, and the room was comfortable enough, but I don't think it was worth 16 euros!

If you want a place near the main street, this might not be the perfect place. However, if you are looking for a place that is near by the train station, this is it. Staffs are nice and the place is clean.

No decoration,No reception at night,no lockers in the rooms.I was scared that the bed above fell on me during the night...Depressing hostel,It's just a place to sleep 1 night and no more. Good only if you're on a very tight budget.

Flexible shower head wouldn't stay in holder on the wall. The hose to the flexible shower head was broken so the water sprayed out of the hose rather than the shower head.

Not the typical party hostel. (When we were there at least) It was very quiet and we mostly had the place to ourselves. Nice little balcony and very friendly staff. They even extended the breakfast hours for us on one day! Very nice place indeed!

There wasn't anyone at the hostel when we arrived, but they called us that day to ensure we were able to get into our room. When the staff was there, they were friendly. The room was small and there was nothing special about it, but it met our needs. The location was great - close to Plaza Mayor and there's a bus stop just outside, which was convenient when we came from the bus station.

The Hostel could be machinnes of drinks and foods.

There was no people at reception in order to help people arriving. Other tan that, a cheap, clean place to sleep and continue your journey.

CAREFUL: ENSUITE in this hostel is not really ensuite. We booked a double room ensuite and we got a room which had a shower but no toilet. The toilet was outside in front of the lunch room. Even that the toilet it's supposed to be "yours" (it has your room number in the door), it's not really inside your room and you have to exit your room and pass through a common area to access it. Breakfast was 2 slices of bread with marmelade and a coffee. Everything else was ok as the average hostel.

There was a lack of security within the rooms of the hostel. Although there is a code to get into the building and your room, once inside there is no locker to secure your belongings. If checking in after 11pm, there will also be no one there to help you. The rooms are small and old and there was a peculiar smell. The sheets weren't very clean and the bathroom was average.

The hostel was really good. The bedroom was good and clean, and the batheroom too. The security sistem of the hostel and the rooms was perfect, with passcodes. Besides that the kitchen was very equipped.

This place is super basic and it has absolutely no character whatsoever. The staff were not particularly friendly nor were they hardly ever there. I only booked it because everywhere else was booked for the holiday weekend that I was there. It's fine for a night but if you're alone, you wont meet anyone. The breakfast was pretty lame-toast with jam and a spot of coffee was going. They need better breakfast and a more attentive staff to make it a decent place to stay.

It was a great location! The breakfast consisted of bread and jelly, so that was disappointing. It was a fine hostal, but nothing I would rush to stay at again.


89%

A very nice cosy hostel. Good place to stay if you want a quiet place to sleep. Staff were very friendly and helpful but weren't there most of the time. Located really close to Plaza Major and other cool sites.
