The hostel and staff were great. The staff were friendly and helpful and the hostel was everything we needed in a hostel. The only slight issue was the location, it is out on the edge of town but serviced well by a local bus route. The location was quiet so good if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town.

The hostel is outside of the city center by a river. Beautiful calm location close to the Euskotren metro which will take you to city center in few minutes. Very nice staff. They had ac units and fans to cool down the dorms which was nice as it was really hot. Cleanliness of the bathrooms and locker drawers under the beds could be improved.
