23 April 2014

Liked: Not a lot

Disliked: The staff were extremely unfriendly, no suggestions of what to do when we were turned away before check in (no option for eatly check in), the lockers in the room dont match layout of the beds so you are always in someone's way, the private bathroom has automatic lights which go off when you are in the shower or toilet, the breakfast is terrible. Didn't like this hostel at all, by far the worst I've ever stayed in.

Liked: The whole thing was huge! It has 12 stories with plenty to offer! The beds were clean and soft, the bathroom was big and had 2 showers in it and the toilet and sink. They offered free breakfast (Spainsh of course, which entails: toast, cereal, jam, tea, juice, coffee, and some meats), help with booking things to do in the city, pool, gym, laundry service, and luggage storage.

Disliked: The door to the room creaked really bad when you opened or closed it, and to close it you had to slam it so it would shut propperly. This wasn't convenient for the rest of the people in the room at night when people would come back from their night out and stuff.

Liked: Facilities had pretty much everything you need. I stayed in a female only room and it had a pretty nice bathroom. Staff was nice and helpful! Overall, it was worth the price.

Disliked: Granted that it's so cheap, you get what you pay for, so everything wasn't super nice, but it was good enough. The only complaint I have was that breakfast was at least 30 minutes late. Other than that, the location is a little sketchy which can be concerning if you're travelling alone.

Liked: The hostel was really clean and the staff was very helpful. Every person we came into contact with who worked at the front desk had nothing but good advice, whether it was a place to grab a bite to eat or which beach to head to, and presented it with a smile on his or her face. The secure lockers that are activated with your personal room key was such a huge bonus in my book.

Disliked: Hailee left no negative feedback.

Liked: The bed was pretty comfortable

Disliked: The staff was not helpful at all when I called for directions, they didn´t give me a locker because someone else had put there things in the one that belonged to me, the rooms were not very clean and my pillow did not have a case. The worst part was how dirty the bathrooms were. It was obvious that the bathrooms are not cleaned thoroughly. It REAKED of urine!

Liked: The staff were very helpful and spoke many languages. They were able to provide good directions and immediate help when needed.

Disliked: Midway through my stay there was an issue with the hot water which led to a drip in my bathroom ceiling and in the hallway. I'm hoping it was a fluke but it was unfortunate to wake up without hot water.

Liked: 전체적으로 만족이었습니다. 방은 좀 좁았지만 쓸만했고- 조식도 맛이 나쁘지 않았습니다.

Disliked: 조식의 다양성이 없어요. 환기를 시킬수가 없어요. 창문을 열려면 스탭에게 먼저 말을 해야 아저씨가 열쇠로 열어줍니다. To ventilate(to open the window), you have to say to the staff- then the guy works at the building will open with the keys.

Liked: nothing like.

Disliked: It is a feeling. you can feel it but at this moment I can not discribe it immediately. 3 persons live in a two berths room. it is very uncomfortable. the bed is not good. the ventilation in the room is not good.the hostel is near the supermarket but the assistant did not tell us so we can not do it. while later when we found it out it was meaningless. otherwise we can enjoy a typical food there. the lobster and other things are so atractive but the not helpful assistant did not tell us the right thing.
