Toilet not very clean. Very noisy Staff very nice
I recommend to stay on a non-weekend night, if possible. The proprieter told me that it really empties out then and he offered my friend and I a free upgrade to a private two-person room in the apartment building across the street. It was very clean, but cramped. The one next door was larger though.
Well, security in the hostel definitely is a problem. The entrance in the building in not locked (well, there is a receptionist but he never even raises his head to look who is going in) and the door into the rooms is neither. Moreover, there are no lockers at all. We stayed in a dorm for 20 people and there were only two wall sockets so there is no possibility to charge your phone, tablet, camera... The bathrooms were filthy and the ceiling was covered by mould.
There are no lockers for your belongings and the doors don't lock which was a bit annoying.
There was no wifi in my roomy, there was frequently no toilet paper and the showers were flooded.
This hostel was great for two nights. Great location for walking to La Catedral, La Casa de los Conches, Plaza Mayor and the city in general. The rooms have heating, plenty of space and are pretty dark. The bathrooms and common areas are clean. Exactly what you would expect for the price, and no more.
