    This hostel blows all the others in Spain out of the water. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The common areas were clean and inviting, as were the dorms. The dorms had proper air conditioning that allowed everyone to sleep soundly through the hot summer nights. The rooftop bar was also a great pro to have after a long day out and about in the city. Overall, this is one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in, and I will definitely return / recommend to everyone.

    I’m a female solo traveler. PERFECT location, doesn’t get better. The rooftop restaurant was great to meet people and have a drink/app before heading out. They provide an excellent map of the city. One (mild) area for improvement is to provide shelves, hooks, and drawers in the rooms to organize your things. It gets messy. 2nd, the private room I paid for was a room with 2 bunk beds (not single bed), unexpected per the pics on the website. Overall GREAT clean hostel. Would return!

    A really nice hostel with great rooftop, wish I spent more time! Good atmosphere all around and daily activities were a nice plus. One thing that wasnt great is that our 6 bed dorm only had 4 lockers, it wasnt full when I was there so I just used another.
