Safe neighborhood though it gets pretty quiet at night. Our room was on the ground floor (and next to the street) so when people started taking showers at night, there was a pretty bad smell from the drainage pipes which are just right outside our room. We tried to complain but hotel staff said there was nothing he could do other than spraying some air freshener into our room, which was quit upsetting. Other than this, the hostal was a nice place to stay and the staff were helpful.
The Hostal was easy to find and is situated in a lovely Plaza with three very good cafés and a fruit shop. The facilities were kept spotless and any difficulties were quickly attended to with a smile and friendly greeting. The shower was very good regarding the pressure and hot water, however it was a bit small for someone my size (182cm & 82kgs). At no stage did I encounter anything negative from the staff, they were always really friendly.
It's a hotel rather than hostel (so I haven't marked down atmosphere), but this was a good little place. Staff were helpful and friendly, good location between rail station and major sights and near cafe's. Pillow a little hard if I'm being picky, but if you're after a basic, reasonably priced hotel for a night or 2 then look no further.
Great little hostel. A good location, 10-15 minutes walk from the bus station, and within the old city, which is where you'll want to be anyway. Easy (if a bit winding) walk to Mezquita and the Roman bridge. Helpful staff. The hostel didn't have the hang-out-with-other-backpackers feel like some hostels, which isn't necessarily a plus or a minus, just a thing.
The staff was really great. The rooms were a little old but very clean. The room had a nice television with stations that included multiple languages and the bathrooms were nice.
