    The hostel was really clean, the staff was nice and it was situated close to everything. The area felt really safe, which is important to me as a solo female traveller. Thumbs up!

    By far the cleanest place I have ever stayed in and the best WiFi. Bring a padlock and you are absolutely sorted - although I didn't lock my stuff ever and everything was fine.

    Really nice hostel! Super clean and the rooms are very nice with curtains. Bathrooms are nicer than many other hostels and it’s a really good kitchen. Not really a social atmosphere as there are no common areas but other than that it’s a great hostel!

    Really good hostel experience! the staff is amazing, as well as the bedrooms. The only bad thing is that they only have like 3 showers for all the rooms.

    We stayed in the 3 bed private room with an en-suite. Room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The room even had a little conserveratory at the side to sit with a table and three chairs. The only issue we had was when we arrived we had agreed we would leave our bags there at 10.30 and come back at 1 for check in. However there were people checking out as we came in and there was an issue with a towel missing in their room. The receptionist left is sitting there for 40 minutes.

    A lovely stay, close enough to tourist attractions and the beach. The supermarket was just down stairs which was super handy, and there was plenty of other shops close by. It did feel a bit of a rip off having to make a €2 payment for bed sheets though. Other than that, it was quite clean and easy to get to.

    Very Good

    This hostel was decent, but no flair. There weren’t really spaces to hangout and relax and there were tours or dinners available to guests. This would be a good hostel for people traveling in groups but not so much for solo travelers as there aren’t many community activities together.

    Mi peor experiencia en un hostel!! Me sacaron el equipaje de la pieza y lo dejaron en otro lugar sin mi autorización! Tomaron mi ropa del balcón y la botaron a la basura!!, por supuesto que nadie respondió por ella. Además circula gente desconocida en las habitaciones, aún cuando tienen lleno de carteles anunciando que en el lugar roban las pertenencias. Cada vez que se ingresa al edificio hay que tocar el timbre y presentarse con el recepcionista de turno!, algunos con un español muy básico..

    We had booked a private 6 person dorm and when we first arrived the receptionist realized she had given away one of the beds in our room to another girl who had to be asked to leave We had no key to lock our PRIVATE room for the first 2 days and so a cleaning lady walked in without knocking or asking and just walked around our room while people were trying to sleep as well as our door being opened by receptionists we had ZERO privacy for a lot of our stay. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful
