Revolutum Hostel, Salamanca, Spain

14th Dec 2013

In my room of 5 beds, almost all of the sheets had blood stains on them. The beds are REALLY uncomfortable because the metal on the base is sagging so badly. The wifi didn´t work and the bathroom had hair everywhere, even after the staff came in to clean it. I also saw no signs of a free breakfast.

Fantastic hostel. Only issue was that the entire floor of the shower area gets wet, so there´s nowhere to get dressed easily without running the risk of your clothes getting wet. Aside from that, everything was great.

Best hostel I´ve been to. Mamma´s dinners are amazing and the atmosphere is fantastic. Everyone should go and stay! My only issue was the showers - the only holder for the shower head is too low and there isn´t really anywhere that doesn´t get wet. But aside from that everything was perfect.

Nice hostel with a good social atmosphere. A bit on the dirty side, and the showers are frequently cold with poor pressure and broken shower-heads. Great staff.

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and took the time to show guests the main sights of Barcelona on the map, as well as in a scrapbook of photographs so everyone knew what the attractions actually were. There are activities organised throughout the week and the staff are happy to phone up and book other activities on guests' behalf. The hostel was clean and perfectly located. Everyone should stay at this hostel!

No major complaints with regard to facilities, except that the shower was cold. The reception isn't staffed 24 hours, as I was up at 5am and the hostel was completely devoid of staff, and gave no indication of how to contact staff should the need arise. There is no restaurant, only a vending machine, and no swimming pool. It's not within walking distance of the airport. If you want a taxi, they'll book a friend to come for a flat fee of £20. There are probably better hostels near the airport.

Decent hostel. The only major problem was the manager who came in to the rooms unannounced every morning, an hour before check-out, to make sure that people were going to leave the hostel. Unnecessary and really rude.

Great location, friendly staff. They have a strange policy of only having one key per room which is to be left at reception by the last person out of the room.This means that if you roll in at 2am you have to bang on the dorm room until someone lets you in. In reality, it just means that people prop the doors open which equals no security.

Nice hostel. The owner was slightly overbearing but had a genuine concern for the guests and made sure they all had plans for each day. She was also keen to make sure that people struggling to find accommodation weren't turned away, so on my final night the loungeroom was full of guests sleeping on cots.
