Oh, and another thing - bathrooms are SCARY and if you're a female on the 5th floor looking for a room to shower in - good luck! You'll have to shower with the men. Also a bunch of smoking serbians sharing the room - not great. A bad experience overall.

This place has a very sterile feeling - in the reception, cafe and in the rooms - and the staff ARE SO RUDE!!! You will be forced to pay additional fees - such as a 'daily membership' - unless you become a 'friend', meaning you'll have to pay much more - completely ridiculous and uncalled for! (Bad!) music blaring from downstairs through all the windows ALL THE TIME! The one nice thing to say is they organise a lot of tours and activities - but these are overpriced. BAD

BAD, BAD, BAD! ONLY go for the location-which is just about the only redemptive feature of this dire place. The staff, being male, WILL try to hit on you-or hump you upstairs on the balcony- not appreciated, and very unprofessional. Or being female, will scowl at you and refuse to give you any access to WIFI, and behave in an aggressive way. The place is dirty as hell, awful atmosphere, and if you live on the 4th or 5th floor - good luck dragging all your luggage up those stairs - NO lift!

Trips to and from stansted are disaster - very disorganised. They put a paper bag of breakfast OUTSIDE your door and leave it there - mine was swiped by the drunk british man living on the same floor. :( Feared for my safety as the lock on the door was like the lock on a toilet cubicle. Didnt appreciate having my breakfast stolen =(

This is the best location in Girona!!, and the landlord is wonderful!! He brought us a breakfast of fresh bread, croissants and fresh milk every morning. Coffee and tea are supplied in each room. Considering he had a mad teenage couple staying in his rooms, he was very caring and understanding, and helped us out when one of our party got sick. The location is beautiful, the room is big and clean, and the landlord a delight - would certainly recommend!!

Not a bad hostel - I think it doubles up as university accomodation during September-July. Arriving was rather strange, as I had looked for this place but it only opens at a very particular time in August - before this date, you would not know that any hostel existed. I lived on the ground floor and had no robberies, met some nice people from australia and new zealand who staying there for the Fringe Festival. As I was working then for a magazine called ThreeWeeks, the location was not ideal - a bit far from the town centre and further from where I worked, BUT the upside is you have the wonderful Meadows close by. There are facilities to wash your clothes. It is quite quiet, and the street itself smells a bit like popcorn being cooked. :)
