Federico fue muy amable y de mucha ayuda


Bunk beds are cozy, but quite old, so that it is getting loud when someone gets down from or up from or to the upper bed. Our room (4 bed dorm) was a bit smelly, a kind of wet wood. Hostel as such is pretty quiet. A lot of travellers from everywhere spend their time in public area but, at least this is my opinion, they didn't really tried to get new friendships.


Rooms were a bit squeezy, not much room for the bags. They had good luggage storage on the day of check out. Everything else was fine, except WiFi which was a bit touch and go.


Lovely hostel! Federico is the man - friendly and an awesome guitar player. Good vibes and nice decor. Only minus was that my locker was broken and room didn't lock. Other than that, excellent!


Great Hostel. Good location, frendly staff (Lucia is the best!), good breackfast and a lot of art on their walls. Private rooms are good value for money.Very recomendable.


Amazing staff . All smoking women ad friendly . Fairy clean . Relaxing . Would stay here again


The guy in the reception was really nice but he didn't seem to know anything about the area. The facilities are nice but the hostel was very quiet, which was strange since they said it was fully booked.


Nice old building, decent breakfast and good wifi


The breakfast could be a lot better, like having fruits for instance!


Good hostel. A number of events and tours are easily made available. The outdoor seating area and common room are both nice.


It's a good place to stay, although seems like a dangerous place. It's clean and comfortable.


If you depend on Internet connection to stay there, give up! Apart from this, the hostel is located in a good place and it is nice. Good value for money, despite I hoped it was more fun. Besides, all the furniture is old, which give an ancient mood for the place. I personally did not like it.


We didnt really enjoy our stay at this hostel. Firstly, they tried to split my bf and I up into two different rooms. Our room was located in the reception area, which was very noisy at night and for breakfast. The receptionist even hired up the music at 12am when people were in bed. The kitchen was tiny. The bathrooms had alot of water on the floor. Plus you cant bring in your own alchol and the bar out the back opens after 8 and is pretty crapy. We spent three nights here and left very tired.
