03 June 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Across the street, there is a bar/restaurant that has a 1.50 euro breakfast (deal with the hostel) of a cappuccino and a croissant. It was delicious!! There were regular beds, not bunk beds. The room had a sink in it. The shower had good pressure and a shelf in it (why don't more places have a shelf in the shower??).

Disliked: A little bit hard to find when you first get there because you don't know which door to enter, and they have to buzz you in. There are no lockers in the room, but there is a locker area on the second floor. It was really loud at night because of the bar across the street.

Sarah King

18 June 2010 Sarah would recommend this property

Liked: It is a hostel in a hotel so its kinda odd. The hostel area was nice but very basic and not meant to be a hang out and socialize. There was no kitchen which was disapointing but we managed. It is near the Terminal station so that is nice to get around but not much else other then restraunts. If you are there to meet people and have fun go on the spanish steps pub crawl. That made the trip. If your looking for a clean bed and a coach to rest and watch a movie at the end of the night this is your place.

Liked: I really liked this hostel. The staff were friendly. It was clean. The only thing is that there is a cafe/club on the same street as the hostel and the music keeping blaring late into the night, making it difficult to sleep. But overall a good experience.
