    Taking into account that there are covid-19 restrictions, the hostel did the most as it was allowed to, to give us a good time. Good facilities and perfect walking distance to basically everything important. Thanks to the receptionists for the help and Da**el for organising beach trips!

    Was a little bummed that the activities like paella night and pub crawl weren’t a thing because of COVID. I was still able to meet cool people and use the well-equipped kitchen. No complaints about the facilities, the staff worked hard to make it the best they could be.

    Daily cleaning of the rooms. Beds have privacy curtains,. Clean showers and bathrooms. Full communal kitchen. Common rooms on 1st floor. Staff is great, never had any issues here. Reception always staffed. Elevator for easy access. Quiet neighborhood. Plenty of shops and small restaurants around. Keycard based system for rooms. Under bed lockers. 10/10 would stay here again.

    Was not the best hostel I’ve stayed in, but not the worst either. The hostel is overall very bad lit, which was annoying at times. The location is great! And it’s a pretty calm hostel. You can choose to interact with people or if you want to keep to yourself. Facilities are okay. Could be cleaned more often…

    Air conditioning was not the greatest. And you need a padlock for the lockers.

    Good location but not much else was amazing. No events going on, staff gave very little information unless you asked and there was no way to meet people really. Big hostel with no community feel. I thought it would be much better so maybe they're just getting going again.

    The AC didn't work and it was hard to sleep. Also the rule of staying out of room from 11am-2pm was not right as it forced you to change plans according to them.
