    Nice, small place with a homey feel. A bit empty, but I visited during off season. I only spent 1 night here, but I’d like to spend more some day

    My stay in the Nosadillo was very pleasant. I really liked how easy was to meet people as the kitchen is really the heart of the hostel with everyone gathering up, cooking and eating together, sharing some wine etc. It is definitely a youth hostel and everything is more laid back which I appreciated. The room was clean, the location is very close to the city centre. A very good choice for solo travellers like me as well.

    Very Good

    It is a nice place, but very very basic supplies, the wooden floors creak and it is very loud. There are very few toilets to share, I believe there are only two to share between 3 rooms. There is free breakfast though. The location is around 10-15 mins walk away from the centre.

    This place is more like an apartment in the attic so probably not suitable for everyone. Check-in and check-out system bad. There is no reception. I arrived around 21 and since I didn't receive any code for entering the building, I don't know how would I have got in, if there hadn't been people entering at that very moment when I was there. And apparently I wasn't the only one confused. So be careful that you receive something on your e-mail or if not, contact the place.

    It may have been because it’s out of season but the place felt like it needed a lot of work done and was very basic. There was also no atmosphere but again this might be because it’s November

    Very desorganized place when I arrived there was someone sleeping in my bed. The rooms do not correspond to the pictures I was very desapointed to find that out. Either way they have lovelly staff and I think they are trying to change things around. But I don't think I would stay there again.
