    Excellent bunk beds! Person moving on top bunk didn’t create any disturbance for person underneath. Solid structure! Hostel was very well designed and they thought about everything that could be needed by very transient passengers!

    Great hostel, probably one of the most comfortable and clean I've ever stayed at. Cute little bar area outdoors that you can hang out in and not far at all from the city center.

    Very nice hostel, we even stayed one night longer than planned. The staff was very nice and communication was easy even though we don’t speak Spanish. The rooms weren’t really big but it was enough. They had waterproof wristbands instead of card for opening the doors and your own locker which was really convenient especially at the beach. Overall would stay there again :)

    Good hostel, great location 5min walk from beach. I had an unlucky intoxicated roommate, but the reception was fast to respond and throw the person out. Otherthan that great hostel with privacy.

    Nice place to stay, with a secure courtyard to sit in. Friendly staff and easy atmosphere, with free breakfast included. Beds are clean and decent, but bottom bunk very low to ground, so easier to get in and out for young people than old codgers like me. No facilities to wash or dry clothes.

    Great location and very nice. They have no activities though which is annoying since it makes it harder to meet people. There's a bar in the patio area open on Friday and Saturday evenings, and a lot of locals go there. The hostel is clean and the rooms are nice with decent privacy for the beds.

    If the hostel is going to jack up the price to 40€ per night, it would have to be something special but it isnt. The staff were not very helpful and the kitchen only has a microwave.
