Liked: Everyone eating together at dinner, easy way to make new friends.

Disliked: A staff member woke me and another guest up in the middle of the night because one of us was in the wrong bunk, and he wanted to put a new guest in that bed. It was bad service, and pointless because at that hour he was not going to get new sheets and make up the bed again himself. As a result, I was so angry I did not sleep for 5 hours which was extremely annoying.

Liked: This place is great for meeting people. Their breakfast and dinners are reasonably cheap and delicious. They are so helpful with any information you need about the city.

Disliked: Only one bathroom per floor; it was sometimes enough, sometimes you'd have to wait forever to shower. It also faces a VERY loud street, so sleeping can sometimes be a little rough.

Liked: Very clean, had a lot of available amenities that you can access yourself without requesting from someone.

Disliked: Reception did not speak english so had some tough language barriers, also concept of time was a little off. He said a taxi would be there for me in 5 minutes and 20 minutes later we were still sitting there. Normally this would be okay but I was on a timeline.

Liked: This is a great hostel to meet other people. They serve breakfast and dinner, free coffee and tea all day and every night there's a theme to socialise with others! The staff is really friendly and helpful (they speak english!) except for one guy. Location is perfect. Close to the old town and la Marín bus terminal. The street is always packed with people (and police) so no need to feel unsafe. The hostel is very clean. Stayed in a 4bed dorm which was very spacious. There are 2 floors and 1 bathroom for each floor. But wasn't really a problem for me. The bathroom has a tub as well. Very clean and big. Each has an own locker for use.

Disliked: Stayed at the third floor where the staff kitchen is as well. Was there on a Saturday night and they were really loud.

Liked: The facility is nice and new especially the kitchen. I felt very secure, in order to enter the hostel you need to be buzzed in via camera. Relaxed atmosphere.

Disliked: Staff was friendly, but you had to go up to them to get information, and it was kind of unclear who actually worked there because no one really introduced themselves, but once you figured it out they were great and helpful.

Liked: Good location to get to La Rhonda in old town, and right near all transport links if you want to visit new town, comfy large beds, dorm with 4 beds is a bigger room than the dorm with 6 beds, strangely enough! Breakfast is gorg!! Good sized bathroom, staff couldn't do enough! Good common rooms!

Disliked: Couple of the girl staff, (I think volunteers) were really loud and made it a little awkward for the guests one day and night,

Liked: a great hostel, sorry i only had one night to spend there. really nice kitchen, good breakfast (costs extra), friendly and helpful staff, free coffee (with milk!), fairly social as lots of people sit around the big table by the kitchen. the old town area is nice, full of beautiful churches. did not go on the free walking tour but it's a nice touch.

Disliked: the neighborhood shuts down really early - if you want nightlife stay in new town. also as previously said longish bathroom lines in the morning, but take a shower at night and you'll be fine!
