This was a small hotel, not a hostel. Great value for the price, espeically if you are only staying a couple nights to visit Oviedo or the Picos de Europa. It was nice they had 24 hour reception. If you are interested in doing any excursions outside of Oviedo, I would recommend the tourist office as the hotel staff doesn't have a lot of resources.
Hotel is relatively OK, but staff is below standard - they either speak no English or with faltering. The main reason I rated staff the lowest is unacceptable behaviour of the male receptionist that charged my CC: he grabbed CC device and selected € instead of letting ME choosing my local currency to pay the bill. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE! I don't care about bigger expenses for the hotel - if that currency selection option is THERE, you must let CUSTOMER select it!
None of the staff was speaking either french or english The room was really small (chamber as well as bathroom) and the bed not really confortable ; the room was quite hot without an air fan in good condition + Parking closed the sunday
We stayed here for a wedding on the weekend and could not recommend the place highly enough. Very centrally located in the heart of the city. The owner's do not speak much English, but this wasn't an issue. Great hostel!
Very friendly reception attendant, apologised profusely that he didn't know English very well but his English was a lot better than our Spanish! Very nice room but quite hot, little ventilation and no a/c but apart from that we enjoyed our stay
We have stayed here for two nights and we were really happy about the location, walking distance from the old town and all the good places to eat and drink the famous cider. Our room was very clean, but it was a very simple room with a very old looking shower. Very quiet and relaxing place, not much atmosphere, but good value for money! Also you can park your car right next to the hostel in the underground parking for a discounted price which is very handy.
Staff are very helpful, though not eager to engage in talking.
Pro's: Clean, cheap, good location Con's: Smelly drains, almost no natural light This review is still a recommendation however as for the price and location, it's still good value!
