Cody Hellstern thinks…

"We stayed in the apartment, and it was very clean and modern. Good location just a 5 minute walk east of the actual hostel."

Liked: Great Location!

Disliked: The musty smell on the stairway. The leaky roof that dripped on me when it rained- yuck!. The staff had to place buckets and towels along the stairs. Slight health and safety risk!

Liked: The front desk lady was extremely helpful and nice. Everyone at the hostel was very smiley and kind. The location is amazinggggg, we could make frequent stops a the hostel to drop things off/pick things up or use the bathroom.

Disliked: the showers are a little weird, they are on a push timer and so you have to keep pushing the button, every minute or so, to keep the hot water going it was a little obnoxious.

Liked: Great location, the hostel is not too big but it has common areas so it's really easy to meet people. The hostel is clean and each bed has a locker. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and the internet was cheap and fast.

Disliked: They closed the kitchen and common areas around 11 at night, bit annoying if you're prepping for a night out but you can go downstairs and use the tables there.

Liked: Everything, minus some people staying there.

Disliked: Everything was good except there were a bunch of students staying there who weren't actually traveling. Very unfriendly, especially to those who are looking for a good time. But, you'll probably have better luck. Everything else was WONDERFUL.

Liked: We stayed at an apartment a few hundred meters off the hostel it self, with four two-person rooms. The location was newly bought and the apartment itself was renovated and lovely. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were above average. The people staying there with us were couples of all ages, and it really was suitable for just that. Couples of any kind. The hostel itself seemed to be excellent for backpackers and youngsters alike, with a very hippie-feel to it and located nicely in a drawn back alley. If I do go back, as I intend to, I'll be staying in the dorms of Ithaca for sure.

Disliked: When we entered the hostel in the evening, we were told that the renovations on the stairs of the building we were to stay at were still going on. Because of this we got a 10 euro-discount and it seemed fair. What wasn't was of course the fact that we weren't informed about this untill the moment we got there. Now. We're pretty active people who wanted to see the city and not stay at the hostel all day, but unfortunetly one of us got a raging tooth-ache and had to stay back alot, sleeping and taking anaesthetic. This we deemed to be pretty freaking difficoult as the builders started at about 8:00 with their hammering and of course (it's catalonia!) didn't stop 'till 10:00 in the evening. The provided breakfast wasn't really worth much either, but we thought as much and bought our own. So that would be the only real complain, except for a straining door. The noise and the fact that we weren't warned about it.

Liked: Place was super clean, staff mature, bilingual and helpful and as solo traveler I always felt safe in this area. They are also good about closing common areas near dorm rooms at 11pm so great if you are wanting non party place to stay.

Disliked: Spoiled me for other hostels!
