You know what you are getting with this chain of hostels - clean rooms, staff with knowledge and huge common spaces that take away a bit from typical hostel atmosphere. But still good value for what you are paying.

Very cool hostel with some of the better dorm rooms and bathrooms I have been to in Europe. Nice location with bars and cheap eats nearby. Hostel staff are fun and always up for good time. Bar downstairs can get a little smokey during drinks, but hey- that Czech!!! Will be back if in Prague again

Good spot near bars and cafes. Feels more like a cafe than a hostel with downstairs being open to all. Staff answered questions and queries with as little detail as needed, felt like they had other things to do

Brilliant location in the East, close to all that is good. Bathrooms best I have seen for a while, probably due to enthusiastic cleaners (commence 9am) Great spot, would return for sure.

Great pool area and breakfast was delicious. However, the manager was toe-licking creepy, and whilst we were there, an outbreak of bedbugs in a dorm made us reconsider the duration of our stay. The desk staff are fantastic though

Brilliant Hostel! Staff (especially Sab at the front) were not only helpful and friendly, but went out of their way (after hours) to socialise with guests. Breakfast is good, location is close enough to all things good, but the rooftop is the best bit! Wouldnt stay elsewhere if in Cordoba.

Agree with other reviews that it felt like a hotel. The facilities there are very good, apart from the computers as half didn't work. The upstairs beer garden had lots going for It but shut a 9.30pm. The staff were generally ok, apart from the English speaking girl at the front who would not let me use the phone to cancel a horse ride after I had been hugging the toilet all night. The breakfast is quite good and the beds are comfy and clean. This hostel could be great, but gets just an ok

Cons first - The main toilets are in a hallway with little privacy or ventilation , several showers including ensuite did not work at all for duration of stay (week), limited computer use available. Pro´s - Brilliant location with numerous cafes and bars close by, security consisting of buzzer entry (no key) is good for piece of mind and is 24 hour and the upstairs beer garden/ rooftop area is absolutely stunning. For the price of the rooms its a very good hostel and would recommend for sure

Very clean hostel in a great location. The staff here are really friendly and helpful. But i think you should search elsewhere if your after a super social hostel. Can also get a bit noisy and stuffy in some rooms.
