Quirky little hostel which was a little strange but with everything you really need. The common areas have plenty of random items that look like a neighbour didn't have space in the garden shed so they just left them all there, strangely though it sort of adds to the relaxed small-town hostel feel. Certainly no corporate feel at all and a short walk from everything, but then again everywhere in Toulouse is walking distance anyway. Probably the best budget option in the city.

It's been a while since I've stayed in such a nice hostel. The rooms are all massive, the common areas are great and the staff were really cool. Only downsides were that there weren't any events to meet anyone, however if you're even just a little outgoing you'll have no problems. Also the shower push-button only lasted about 10 seconds but I cheated and wedged the doormat into the corner of the shower to keep it going =P Would recommend

Awesome, just like my last stays here. Only problem was the dining area closed at 12 and their bar area isn´t yet set up but amazing hostel otherwise.

Hi Karl Many thanks for your feedback. We will open the bar and the terrace soon, but right now the neighbors not allow us to have the dining area with lot of noise after 12. In any case, we are working to fix this and soon will be like before! hope you understand Many thanks

Everything was pretty good except the kitchen isn´t 24/7 and 1 or 2 of the staff were a little... stressed maybe?

Close to the city centre and there were no lack of utensils in the kitchen at all which was a nice change. One or 2 staff members were a little impatient and sarcastic in not very nice ways.

Everything was great except there was no stove or oven, only microwaves and nothing to even cook in the microwave with! Other than that, it was quite nice (the location isn´t a problem! It´s right near a metro station with metros leaving every 2-3 minutes right for the city centre!)

This stay was really just an expansion of my previous one. Amazing hostel in all aspects!

As soon as I walked in the door I had major, recurring problems with a staff member. I don´t know if he´d had a rough couple of days or if he didn´t like me because of my race or something but he made it clear that he didn´t like me from the start. I´m very thankful for the cafe that´s connected to it, it´s a great place to chill out with a friendly atmosphere to get away from all staff-ly worries.

I really have NO idea why this is apparently the best hostel in Spain. It´s not a bad hostel but it´s definitely not literally THE best, there was no breakfast included and there was nothing particularly amazing about any part of the hostel other than its location. No bad experiences, just none worthy of all the hype either.

Very nice hostel, damn hard to find from the bus station though with the constantly changing street names.

Fairly decent hostel, although it definitely had more of a hotel feeling. Would be quite nice during the busy period. And one of the staff looks/sounds like Mila Kunis!

Honestly probably the best hostel I´ve ever stayed at, the ONLY thing I had a problem with was finding it (because there aren´t any external signs, etc). All in all, amazing experience. Definitely staying here if I come back to Madrid.

This has actually been my second stay with these guys. They are so awesome and friendly and I really didn't want to leave! They make you feel so at home and like you are a part of their family, it's great.
