25 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: would recommend this hostel, no doubt. i stayed with 2 other girls, and it was clean, safe, and so close to EVERYTHING! 2 min. walk from Picasso Museum, Cathedral, and numerous other things...and metro of course. Lockers to lock your stuff in for free. Clean bathroom. Kitchen available to use. Cheap, filling breakfast. The only thing I would criticize is that you have to pay to use the internet on the computers there, where in other hostels it's been free. Overall, I would stay there again, hands down.

10 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good Hostel, dishonest advertisement. Bad things: 1) There is a strict curfew from 4am to 7am. This NEEDS to be stated on the website, would have picked a different hostal had we known. 2) In the rule book you receive upon check in it states that cleaning is from "12-2pm" but she vacuums and begins cleaning around 10:30am and looks annoyed that you are in the way. 3) There is no noise allowed after 10:00pm, NONE. Kitchen closes, common room closes, you will be shushed at in your room, and you will be shushed at in the lobby. Good things: Clean, good breakfast, warm blankets, great location, awesome staff. Overall, enjoyed our stay, just wish the property description was more honest!
