I would stay here again. Don't like push showers that stay on only 10 sec, not a big deal though.

Thanks for taking your time to leave a review. We have push showers as a way to save water as it is an important issue here in Spain.


Very friendly and helpful staff, nice and luxurious that breakfast was included

Great hostel, but the floor in the room had never been washed in a week. And toilet paper we have ended, but we have not brought new.

Owner Comment (Hide)
I’m sorry to hear that, we try to maintain our rooms as clean as possible. We have spoken to our cleaner about the lack of toilet paper and we apologize for any inconvenience caused.


Cleanliness: Good; no visible issues. Service: Average; night crew doesn't really want to deal with you, day crew is nice and helpful. Amenities: Average; decent breakfast, space heater only, nice apartment extension of the hostel if wanting a private room, reliable but short range internet, patio-side rooms are not rainproof (leaks under door), drop-off laundry service for 10€, community computers and printing access.

Thank you for leaving your comments. We have just installed new fibre-optic internet access with a more powerful router so we hope if you came again you would have a good WIFI connection. We are dealing with the water entering from the patio door. I’m sorry to hear that you felt the night staff were not as helpful as the day staff, we have spoken to them to make sure we offer the best service we can.


really nice place- especially the new place which is a few minutes away from the hostel. Nice and clean room, kitchen, bathroom. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had a great time.
