    A very laid back environment. Great value for what you pay for. Great location. Loved the breakfast. Friendly staff and owner. If you're looking for something social, this place is perfect.

    El hostal es hermoso en todos los aspectos. El desayuno es complet, todos los dias tenes algo distinto para desayunar. Muy bien ubicado, cerca de todo y la gente que trabaja es super amable y buena onda. Un lugar al que vas por dos dias y te teminas quedando una semana.

    Really loved this hostel! It had such a great vibe and was very lively but also calmed down around 11pm ish so was also great if you wanted some sleep. The beds on three levels and divided by boards made it also feel like you had your own space as well as being able to socialise if you wanted to. The breakfast was different every day and made by a local woman and was always really tasty and filling. Lovely rooftop bar with events too. Would deffo reccommend for a great vibe and value for money.

    Awesome hostel, very social and fun! Little smelly but that’s how populated hostels be sometimes lol. Staff is all super friendly and fun. Location is perfect, close to everything. I stayed in the 8 bed dorm and would recommend that. The price difference is minimal and allows for a bit more comfort. I’d highly recommend this hostel!

    Really nice hostel, good breakfast and nice rooftop bar BUT don't do the cooking class it's a complete rip off. We spent 3 hours just watching the woman cook us a pretty standard meal, didn't learn any cooking skills. Only thing we were asked to do was pull a huge block of cheese apart. Waste of £20.

    Very Good

    Music in the downstairs area was loud until late. Light shines into beds. Breakfast is too late, between 9-10:30am and the cook/server doesn't speak English so some found it hard to communicate. Bathrooms were average. The water eventually got hot but was a trickle. Some staff were lovely and others unapproachable. It was a social hostel if you're looking for that. Good location. Ants in my bed. This is a confusing review. 7/10 honestly unsure if I'd stay again.

    I did not enjoy my stay here. It was difficult to know who the staff were and who were the guests. The staff were not very helpful or knowledgeable about the city, and seemed bothered when asked questions. However, the owner was super nice and welcoming. Place was a bit rundown and dirty, and I never felt like I was clean.

    Really disappointed by this hostel, the staff were rude throughout the whole stay and not very welcoming or that helpful. When I arrived one of the staff members made fun of my attempt to speak in Spanish which was really rude and embarrassing. Another staff member approached me to tell me I couldn’t smoke in the outdoor section at the back, after I apologised he said “If I have to tell you again I’m kicking you out”. Rude and unnecessarily confrontational - wouldn’t stay again!
