Excellent atmosphere and location close to a calm part of the beach, which is two blocks from the hostel, nice pool and spacious and comfortable 8-bed dorm. The problems are: no laundry, no kitchen (it seems that there will be one soon), no fridge and the worst: because of the bar, open to no-guests, you can't bring outside food/drinks and enjoy the nice garden and lighting, and you have to resort to the freezing lobby to have your meal. That's really unfriendly, once you're at a hostel.
It is a bit inconvenient not to have wi-fi Internet connection. Almost everybody relies on that nowadays and to my view it is not very kind to charge for this kind of service.
Although the hostel is in Fertilia, out of Alghero, it is closer to some beaches of the area, and there are plenty of buses to get around. The main problem is that the buses that go to the beaches don't follow the schedules, and you might stand under the sun waiting for a bus for two hours. It's better to rent a bike or a car. The environment is familiar, and it is not a good place to socialise. They don't promote anything to make people meet and the living areas are separate from each other.
This is not a youth hostel, it's almost a hotel. There are no dorms, no breakfast included, it's isolated out of Oristano and there are no buses to get there or away. You need to walk for 20 minutes to get to the bus station or the center of the town. If you feel hungry they don't have any food besides desserts, there's no hot water in the afternoon, not much information on transport, it is full of families and elderly, it's almost impossible to socialise. It's definitely for families with cars.
Perfectly located, wonderful rooms with huge windows, nice open common area, good breakfast. There are no lockers though and there could be more sofas to relax.
It's a pensión, not a hostel, so it's definitely not a place to socialise. The private rooms are really small and stifling so make sure you get at least a fan and a room overviewing the street. The ones overviewing the intern courtyard are even hotter and you can hear all the noise from the other rooms (the walls are also paper-thin). There are no lockers or safes.
This hostel has everything to be a great hostel because of the building where it is and its nice location, but it's just a bed for you to sleep. It's totally unsafe - no keys in the rooms, no lockers or safes, no control of who comes in or out. Some of the few bathrooms are private to some guests who pay for them, but there are no signs showing which ones are private or shared. You'll have to stand on a line to have a shower. There are no good living areas, so no socialisation at all.
This is not exactly a hostel. You'll be wonderfully wellcomed by the owner, but you'll stay in his house. He'll give you rides, lend you a bike and his computer, tet you use his washing machine, provide you with all the information you need and make a nice breakfast. But there are no lockers or keys or staff or rules or anything like in a hostel. It's located out of the town. It's a different experience.
Perfect! My best staying in a hostel ever! Perfectly located - easy to go to Alfama and Chiado/Bairro Alto, friendly and helpful staff, nice dorms and bathrooms, clean, free laundry, fully-equipped kitchen, wonderful and comfortable living room and superb 8 euro-dinners every evening - perfect to meet people. I just thing the breakfast could have some fruit or juice. But it has everything you expect from a hosteI. I recommend!
Pleasant and beautiful, quiet, well located, big dorms, peaceful backyard and garden, nice breakfast, clean, friendly and helpful staff. It's good if you want some peace and quiet, not so good if you want to socialise.
