Liked: It is clean, the water is warm and good to take a shower and has a good locker next to your bed to leave your staff safely.

Disliked: Almost everything! At night, the hotel becomes a pub and you'll only find american very young people just doing the same things they'd do at home. It is absolutelly superficial, non interesting and non catalon ambient. If you want to fell in the top of the wave as if you had a TV camera in front of you, that's your place!!!!

Liked: Fantastic location! Friendly guests, some staff are very welcoming and helpful.

Disliked: Coin operated everything. Impersonal. No towels even to hire, you have to buy a crappy beach towel. There is a bar which is nice but no proper common room to chill out. The one window in my tiny 8 bed dorm was bolted shut so the room stank.

Liked: It was the most fun hostel we stayed at in Europe. We met a ton of people. They have a bar in the hostel and it is huge and really easy to meet people. If you are a single traveller I think it would be especially good. When they take you to the clubs it is also nice. I loved it.

Disliked: Well I didnt dislike anything, but I think it is definately a party hostel, so if you are travelling to see sights and want the light in the room off at 8pm... maybe dont stay here. But It is in the best location and a very good choice.

Liked: The location is perfect

Disliked: The room with 20 people is disgusting, the smell when you enter to the room was sick.. The other thing is that the rooms didn't have plug-ins to recharge bateries. The last is that not every floor has a shower, so you have to go to the 4th to shower.
