Liked: This was the most fun hostel I have ever stayed in- it is a fantastic place to meet people; they take you out to a different club every night and they are good clubs! Plus they have a bar where beers are only 2 euros. The location was great as well.

Fernanda Iqueda

01 November 2009

Liked: Apart from Cecilia & people from breakfast, all other members of staff were very unkind. Maybe it's just the catalan way of being, but they should remember they are dealing with tourists...Hostel is VERY noisy (there's no rules not to make noise after midnight) and there are people shouting their lungs out up to 2, 3 a.m. Room (shared w/ 4) was tiny, even for me, a 50-kg-girl... the locker almost came down on me because it was not properly installed and ventilation is null.I would NEVER again in my life stay here.

31 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Fantastic location, great place to meet new people, parties every night of the week, free brekie, a luggage room, water machine, cleaners clean bathrooms every morning. A little bit noisey on our last night we didn't get any sleep due to people coming in and out of the room and the noise from outside the hostel in the early hours of themorning. There were no plug sockets in the rooms to charge our cameras a phones. But will stay again for the fiestas and location!

Gabriela Carvalho

28 October 2009 Gabriela would recommend this property

Liked: The place is really nice and clean... the only thing I didn`t like is that they put me in a room with other 7 guys... I don`t mind the mixed rooms but one only girl in the middle of 7 guys!!! I asked them to change me the room and they didn`t really helped me. Only thing I didn`t like at all.

Liked: The hostel is nice but, I stayed in a room for 4 people and was very small. That time during the day and at night was very hot but they just turn on the air on the summer, doesn't matter how hot are in the others seasons. And in the rooms don't have plug.
