Liked: Friendly staff, got my bed ready early due to early arrival. Booked bus tickets with no commisssion. Sorted tours at going rate very friendly breakfast space that means everyone chats. Great TV room. Comfy beds. Clean! My first place staying on my own and it was brilliant to meet people and interact Breakfast was bread, jam, bananas, oats and tea. Basic but fine and plentiful. Really homey feel and was sad to leave

Disliked: Its 5 blocks from the sq but really that is nothing. The place is so small.

Liked: Close to Plaza de Armada but far enough away from main streets for a quiet nights sleep. Plants of out door space for relaxing. Alot of common rooms to socialise or play in. One of best Hostels stayed in globally out of 170. Breakfast was filling and not stringy.

Disliked: Nothing.
