I was a bit annoyed that a group of travellers in the hostel were up drinking until 3-4am, not just drinking but screaming and making loads of unnecessary noise - the dorms are right next to the common areas and it kept me awake all night. I was unwell so didn't have the energy to get out of my top bunk to shout at the yanquis making the noise but I think the hostel also have a responsibility to make sure people show respect for others, especially after midnight.

That night almost all the passangers that were staying at our hostel were hanging out, sharing traveling experiences and enjoing a beautiful night untill about 1am , then everybody went out together to bars nearby. It is a shame you didnt tell us you felt unwell, we have a doctor and an emergency service included that could have taken you to a hospital if needed, where you could have found absolute silence


Good place, Nice kitchen and salon but the room smelt bad, humidity and was small (twin without bathroom). The staff was great and helpfull. The breakfast was ok. A bit noisy at nigth. We had à good stay


Me and my friends really loved the hostel and the staff!! Everything was great! Thanks Federico for the advices and all your help!

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.
