    Safestay was one of the best beach hostel I have been too. We had an early arrival and the staff was coordinating enough to let us drop off our baggage securely. We did stay out late night and both the times there was a concierge present.

    I stayed there spontaneously and only for few hours of sleep but I was surprised that this hostel is so good comparing to it's low rating score. Everything was fine. I would go back again.

    The hostel is greatly located for me, very close to the beach, local bars and other amenities. The staff are friendly and the beds are comfortable. The rates are cheap and it's an hostel I have stayed at several times.

    My room had an incomplete wall that was attached to the front desk, so at 11pm when the receptionist was having a long, loud conversation, even my earplugs couldn’t drown it out. But god, this place is ON the beach. Hard to beat the location.

    Overall felling is positive, but I met this for the first time, you need to have your own padlock to lock your locker. Always padlocks or lockers comes with keys (sometimes with deposit) but here u need to buy one from reception... The kitchen could be better equipped

    If you want to stay close to the beach then this hostel is fine otherwise prefer staying around the city center, there was no atmosphere whatsever in the hostel, looked pretty dull, plus the noise from the neighbouring streets kept us awake all night.

    Worst hostel i’ve ever stayed at. Dirty, extremely noisey, and awkwardly designed. Choose any other hostel but this one, for one or two euros more, it’s worth NOT staying there!

    This place is not clean at all, the sheets had stains, the floor was dirty, everything looked old and used unlike the pictures, The staff aren’t very friendly. The location is amazing though, its literally on the beach, very close to all the clubs and a 40 min walk to segrada familia which was honestly a very beautiful walk.
