Probably some of the nicest, most welcoming people you will meet in Salamanca. Highly recommended for any erasmus students starting out on their year abroad. Salamanca Dorada is sure to become your home from home while you are settling here. Brilliant place to connect with people from all over the world...I'd be surprised if you are not invited out to join the staff and residents for drinks in the town on your first night there. Perhaps a little awkward for anyone not into drinking, though.

No security whatsoever, no lockers and all doors including downstairs were left open at all times of day. Staff were smoking throughout the hostel. Kitchen and bathrooms were rarely clean.


Nice hostel. In a good location. 5 minute walk to the center. Everything is very clean. Breakfast was good. Atmosphere was alright. Small common area, didn't see other guests, even at breakfast, but it was a nice place.


Great well-stocked kitchen and breakfast facilities, nice, spacious, light-filled dorm room. The bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner and better organised - no hand towels/hand drying facilities, no soap in the bathrooms.


When I arrived, I felt very comfortable from the first moment on. The staff was supernice as well as all the people I met there. It was so familiar, I kind of felt like living in a huge shared flat :) One evening, we sat together in the living room, chatting and afterwards heading to the centre for a few drinks with some of the staff and people staying there. Where the hostel is located is super to check out the town, incl. supermarket round the corner. I can totally recommend to stay there!


Perfect location. A really quiet place to stay mainly full of uni kids. Don't have much to do with the staff and it's not a social atmosphere so if you're on your own it may be a little lonely. But a really nice stay here!

Hello!, It's really a very social atmosphere! The thing is that you came when the students were on exams! So they had no time to hang out. And now on the SUMMER it´s just a hostel full of peoplewith great a great atmosphere! Kind Regards,


It was dirty. We had an earlier bus ride out 10:00 and the man working the front desk wasn't there to check us out and was very rude when we tried to check out.
