Liked: Superb location VERY near main rail station, and our room in the back building was very quiet. The buffet breakfast was excellent. Everything about the place was clean, efficient and well-run. We would stay there again without hesitation.

Disliked: There is no common room, lounge area or bar, so it is not easy to meet other guests - this was not a problem in our case, but might be a concern to some.

30 April 2012 Carla would recommend this property

Liked: I would say that this hostel is very functional, specially useful if you are a young traveler in group or alone that doesn't wanna spend too much money in accomodation and doesn't take care a lot about the conditions. I mean, you can have a room for 15,00 euros breakfast included and it is just 5 minutes away from the main station so perfect if you are travelling by train. Furthermore the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: it is anything couzy or fancy (which in my case I don't mind but some people do). Rooms are very modest and you have to share the bathroom
