Liked: Hola, nosotros estuvimos el el apartamento que está en otro edificio. La primera impresión no fue buena a decir verdad, porque el edificio sinceramente nos daba respeto. Luego cuando entras en sí al apartamento ya es un hostel normalito (tampoco es gran cosa pero esta bien equipado). La cocina estaba muy bien y nuestra habitación privada cumplía con lo dicho en la web. Lo mejor con diferencia la ubicación. Estás a mano de todo, tanto de lo turístico como de la fiesta nocturna y tienes dos paradas de metro bastante cerca y la estación de tren a 10 minutos andando.

Disliked: En la cama había pelusas de otra gente. La luz de la habitación era muy tenue. Al final nos daba hasta la risa. La calefacción era totalmente exagerada. Casi 30 grados dentro de la habitación y no se podía regular. No aceptan tarjetas bancarias, aunque ya lo indican en su web Te piden el pasaporte o dinero como aval por dejarte las llaves del apartamento. Nosotros elegimos darles dinero. Luego te lo devuelven si no has roto nada.

Liked: great kitchen. we made our own meals so that was helpful. the pan was a little on the funky side, but if i am writing about a pan as a negative, you know that everything else was in place. the bathroom was also very clean and the showers were great, which is always important after the exhaustion of traveling.

Disliked: the pan. that's it.

Liked: Astoria was a great hostel. Homely and friendly, and not too party oriented. The walls and doors are quite thin and it's on a main road, but it's still relatively quiet and comfortable, with great facilities. There are only two bathrooms, but the showers are good, so are the kitchen facilities.

Disliked: Emily left no negative feedback.

Liked: This is a great place to stay for several reasons. First of all, it is of course the location. Being located right in the center it was very convenient to be able to go around the town. It is located right at the Metro station, which made it even better. I was able to reach all the interesting touristic places of the town simply by walking there. It made my stay enjoyable. Second of all, the atmosphere created in the property. It is an apartment, which reminds of home, when you're far away. It makes you feel more comfortable.Third, it is the price - a very affordable and lovely place. The price made it very attractive. Finally, the staff - they are amazing, very helpful and very friendly.

Disliked: There is nothing I didn't like.

Liked: NOTHING!

Disliked: The bathrooms - gross. Hair all over the place, dingy, grimy and mouldy. The breakfast - a very poor selection. Bread, nutella and cornflakes. Couldn't even stretch to fruit! The atmosphere - when we arrived everyone was sat in the living room and just stared at us as we passed through. Admittedly this wasn't really the hostel's fault as they have no control over the friendliness of their guests but just made it worse in our eyes. The bedrooms were okay but the beds weren't really comfy and the sheets didn't fit the beds and it just felt a bit dirty. In the end we only stayed one night, the final straw was when we couldn't get any hot water to have a shower (the astoria website does state 24hr hot water, clearly not true). It's cheap but even so I think it's a complete rip off, we moved to a hostel down the road and didn't pay much more each night and we were staying in a converted hotel. It was beautiful. If you're really not bothered about where you sleep and where you shower then you won't mind this place but there are so many nice hostels nowadays this just felt like a hovel. I'd advise you to stay clear - it's just someone's converted flat and they'e looking to make a quick buck at the expense of travellers.
