    Honestly cannot recommend this hostel enough! Firstly - shoutout to Jaime the most friendly hostel man we have come across. Not only was he charming and funny, yet also enormously helpful. The hostel itself was fantastic as well - great breakfasts every morning and occasionally some free shots. Many thanks to Jaime and the team - love from Oscar Tosh. Peace out.

    Lovely place, feels more like a hotel. Less community/meet people vibes than a lot of hostels I’ve stayed at. Breakfast is everything, including for vegans! There is no office space or place to work except in the bustling common areas. My room was on the 3rd (top) floor in a private room and probably 10 degrees warmer because of the laundry and top floor. I was miserably hot doing my work in the room despite a powerful, loud fan blasting hot air onto me all night. The hotel staff is so kind.
