Liked: Excellent location, very close to the beach, the old town and the main square (Place Massena). Supermarket nearby and a handy connnection to the buses and tram network. Bar is quite good, particularly happy hour. Very good free breakfast to offer, and good prices for dinner.

Disliked: Staff weren't very enthusiastic, no real vibe at the hostel - quite dead at times. 16 bed dorms aren't too bad, but queuing up for the shower and toilet facilites in the morning was a bit of a hassle.

Liked: We liked the bar, breakfast was ok, and the walking tour was good.

Disliked: We couldn't believe that there was such a terrible plumbing issue in the bathroom which was also extremely dangerous given the potential electrical consequences. The night porter did not know what to do, fortunately it subsided after a time. The hostel did not formally apologise until requested by myself, and we have received no compensation.

Liked: I really liked the atmosphere and the free pasta with a drink!! Always good for travellers especially on a low budget!

Disliked: I thought at the time it was a bit short staffed it took ages to get a drink and we wanted some information at reception but there was only one person working and was really busy that weekend so maybe more staff but that's it!

Liked: Very nice and tidy with great facilities!

Disliked: Minor dislike but when checking it takes awhile which is expected but it creates a long line of people waiting, surely there is a way to solve this issue especially when people have quick questions and have to wait ages .

Liked: Helpful staff, very interesting (and free) walking tour with Emilie and Santiago, great location and a good priced bar. Very handy to have an ensuite room.

Disliked: NIf I was going to be really picky then I suppose I would say that the room we stayed in was a bit dated. The bunk bed set up was a bit awkward and the beds were a little short. Was that my imagination?

Liked: This place is excellent! Towel rental is actually free cause you pay 5 € and they give it back when you return the towel. Very secure and great atmosphere with the bar, happy hour, free pasta bowl with your first drink after 19h...and a nice common room with comfy couches. Great value for money, friendly staff, great location, and would definitely stay there again!!
