You feel at home immediately. Ideal if you're traveling alone.
the people are amazing in this hostel! great service! we went out to clubs and they even taught me a little spanish haha, i'll miss everyone :(
The hostel atmosphere is really familiar and friendly, staff always does the best for make you feel comfortable and they are well prepared for giving you information about how to explore the best places of the city. You cannot be bored there! They also organize their own trips, the manager bring you personally to see the monuments, or to try the typical food of thecity, I stayed there for quite a long time and I tried most of the activities they offer. We had a great time together, they all like

Staff was only able to speak in Spanish, the check-in time was at 12 a.m. and not at 9 a.m. as written on the page of the residencia, the included breakfast was poor because it was expected to bring your own food anyways as the majority of the guests were students who lived there permanently
My sister and I were unaware that this hostel was a student residencia for those studying in Spain. We were really confused on the breakfast situation since a lot of the students kept their own food in the kitchen so we didn't know what we could have . It also smelled like smoke all of the time, the staff was hardly there or were really hard to find. No maps were available or information about the city too. The showers were good though.
First of all, the directions need to say "Once arrived to #6 door, we are on the 4th floor. AKA: ring 4th floor when you arrive." Second of all, there is not 24 hour reception, the hostel does NOT accept credit cards, all rooms are coed living. Personally, I was not impressed with this hostel and did not shower at all because I did not feel comfortable or clean doing so. I would suggest looking elsewhere.
This isn't a hostel - it's a student residence with a dorm room attached. Incredibly dirty and cramped. You have to share one bathroom with all the long-term student residents. I was meant to stay two nights but left after one. Definitely not recommended.
Had a nice night here. The hostel combines annual student accommodation with guests, so at that time of year there were students who I could talk to
Very good location, 2 minutes straight walk from the Plaza Mayor but slightly tucked away so it's not noisy . Also very easy to walk to from the bus station (20/25 mins) Nice lived in atmosphere as the rest of the flat appeared to be permanent students, but no late night noise or shower queues. Also quite safe as each person has their own set of keys. Owner was very helpful, rang the bus station for me to ask about bus times. BUT you can't pay by card so take enough cash to pay on arrival.
It's in a perfect location, just 5 minutes away from Plaza Mayor. The staffs are very nice.
