Everything was absolutely great, except that the bar at the rooftop was rarely open during the displayed opening times
Kitchen needs a good cleaning. I don't know how long it has been since they cleaned out the microwave, Warning do not look inside! Fridge is very small no room for your food lots of old food left in there. Bathroom shower had a lot of mildew in the grout. Top bunk is so low that you can not sit on your bed on the bottom. no chair and only one lamp next to a lower bed for everyone. noisy on the street side. Rooftop was very dirty. Guy did not show up to open roof bar when we were there.
Good location fairly close to everything. One nice thing was the room had a bathroom with a shower and a sink and then another sink outside. There were no lockers, but I felt pretty safe there. I couldn't get the wi-fi to work in my room and had to go sit on the stairs to get a good connection. I had to checkout somewhat early and had trouble finding the person who was supposed to be working the front desk (he was asleep). The kitchen was nice and large which was great too.
The hostel is situated at just a 10 minute walk through the Barrio Santa Cruz to the cathedral. From the Santa Justa train station it's a 20 minute walk to get there. It is clean and the beds are good. Cosy lounge area and large kitchen/dining. Great roof terrace with bar where we got 2 drinks for the price of 1. The staff is very friendly and the cheapest drinks and tapas are just next door. Coffee 50 cents!
