    A beautiful hostel with gorgeous spaces - the living room is stunning, with a huge variety of spaces to lounge in, from deckchairs to sofas, and a couple of working spaces. The kitchen is slightly cramped when busy but does the job. Breakfast was good and the bed comfy. It's a bit warm without air conditioning, but the fans did their job well enough that I slept very well. Absolutely fantastic.

    The shared room in this city hostel is big and has a vast and beautiful window view of the pier and the sea. It is a compact hostel but offers a pleasant refuge from the city with its public space and kitchen. There was a noisy pier party and/or plaza party late into the night that could be heard from the shared dorm with the windows open at night.

    ControVento was honestly one of the best hostels I ever stayed in. The hostel is located in a cool building directly next to the harbor and thus very close to the city center. It's a rather small hostel which makes it easy to meet people there. The rooms are really big and spacious, so were the lockers. Breakfast was included. The staff was also really friendly and helpful. The only thing that I could criticize was that there are only two girls showers, but that didn't bother me during my stay.

    A nice hostel with lots of seafront views. Hostel was clean and it had great kitchen facilities. Breakfast was nice too. Staff friendly and helpful! The nearby bars can be quite loud depending on what room you’re in so is maybe better to keep the windows closed at night.

    One of the nicest hostels I stayed in on my trip through Europe!! Everything’s so spacious and cozy at the same time. The view out of the room was amazing, the whole place was very clean and just made you feel comfortable and at home. It’s also a big plus that breakfast is included. Although it’s nothing special, it’s a great opportunity to meet people in the hostel and make plans for the day:)

    The hostel is well equipped, clean and the staff friendly and professional. It is located close to the sea and the city center, the only minus would be that we found it hard to rest and sleep at night as the floors are very creaky and the walls are thin. And the road outside is very busy when you open the windows in summer.

    A fantastic place to stay right in the heart of the city at a reasonable price. Staff were also extremely accommodating and friendly. The beds, although not as private as you may find in some hostels, were comfortable and there was an appropriate amount of luggage storage provided. The main issue was the lack of atmosphere (through no fault of the hostel) as it can just be luck of the draw sometimes. Would definitely stay again if I came back here!

    Great hostel for a short stay! It has everything necessary apart from providing towels. Also, it is beautifully located at the harbour in the middle of the city. It is clean and the staff is very helpful. Only downside is the lack of atmosphere. However, I would still recommend coming here if it is for a short term stay.
