Neither the city nor the hostel have a backpacker vibe, the majority of visitors are people that are visiting study abroad students or on a larger tour of Spain, because of this the hostel didn't have a very good vibe for meeting people. There was a nice cafe but it is also open to the public so it is not just people from the hostel that are there. Great location. Clean, but small rooms. Elevator and minimal breakfast.
I was disappointed that most "receptionists" did not speak English very well. It was difficult communicating. I wouldn't advise staying here if you are traveling alone, it is difficult to meet new people. The hostel was very nice otherwise, but the bar downstairs was also very overpriced and a much more mature crowd.
You can't beat the location. Right across from plaza mayor and located in the center of all the night life it's so great. However, the staff consisted of the bar's bartenders, the kitchen/ common area was not a nice to hang out and there just want that hostel vibe. It was a hotel. I wouldn't stay here if you're traveling alone because you'll have a hard time meeting people. Also wake up early if you actually want breakfast otherwise they run out
A stylish place w/ helpful staff, it does however lack in hostel comradery because the common area is essentially a bar in a more fashionable sense. So no low key lounging spot without buying drinks. For the very few using the kitchen, it's quite exc. and particularly well appointed w/ all necessary appliances/crockery/etc at a much better than average level. Electronic card keys needed inside the dorm to access lights and worked poorly if someone else in bathroom. Also no charging devices away.
Friendly staff, excellent location. Rooms are just regular, could be more plugs, atmosphere is quite ok.
I am studying abroad in Salamanca for 6 months. My boyfriend was visiting me so we got a hostel. This hostel was in a PERFECT location, the breakfast was amazing, staff was great, facilities were nice. Not noisy, not dirty. We were spoiled here. We are now in a hostel in Madrid that we don't like as much. BEST HOSTEL IN SALAMANCA COMING FROM SOMEONE WHO LIVES THERE
Super nice hotel. There's a bar right downstairs and a fully equiped modern kichen on the basement floor. Breakfast was also very nice and rich. Location was in the center of the old town. A bit noisy at night tho. Overall quite luxurious stay.
The hostel is ideally placed in the centre of the city. It is clean and the beds are comfortable. The breakfasts are good with lots of fresh bread, fruit and cheese, with coffee and tea available. It is possible to use a kitchen area which is well equipped. My only grumble would be that in the dorm room that I was using, there were no sockets within the room for recharging phones etc. only two sockets in the bathroom area that actually worked which was a bit inconvenient.
The Atmosphere is not of a Hostel, but of a Hotel. This is good when you are travelling with friends or with family, but not so good when you are traveling alone because it makes it harder to meet new people. Really nice place, though. And excellent location.
They clearly turned a hotel into a hostel, but the atmosphere still was of a hotel. The 5 bed shared room is so tiny. If everyone have a mediam suitcase, they won't all fit in the room. They only had 3 outlets that worked in the room. There were minor repairs that should be done to make the place look nice. Breakfast was nice/ok. I never went to the bar because it wasn't a hostel bar, it was just a normal bar.
