Liked: The staff were very very friendly and helpfull! (Thank you Martha, Maria and Leo). The hostel is very close to Sants Station which was perfect because I had an early morning flight out & could catch the first train. Even though it was away from the city center, it is well served by the metro with stations a few minutes away. The individual lockers in the rooms are most def a plus and the hostel was clean.

Liked: Free basic breakfast, nice info board in the living room with tips and an activity each night. DVDs to watch on the TV, lockers, individual lights, pretty much has everything you would need for a basic stay in a hostel. Clean and great staff!

Disliked: Nothing really! The only problem was other guests -- had a huge group of teeny bopper school excursion kids who were pretty annoying, but that's no fault of the hostel...

Disliked: Lots of noise from the street if you get a bed near the window. The location is a bit far from coty centre, but subway is close and it is really close to the mais train starion, wich is a plus. I recommend he hostel!

Liked: Free locker is very nice. Staff are great. Free wifi was pretty speedy. (Note: iPad, iPhone, iPod users, they're using an older router and you'll want to enter the password with a "$" at the begininning).

Disliked: More hot water! Push button showers are kind of annoying to begin with, but these ones get cold during high use periods.

Hello!

Thanks for your rating! We are very sorry about the hot water issue, that morning there was a misprogrammation of the heating/hot water system and there was not enough hot water for half an hour (unfortunately when you had your shower :S ). We could fix the problem as soon as a guest told us, and it was working perfectly ok after that 30 minutes. We assure you that normally we have enough hot water for the whole hostel, as we know how important it is, specially on winter time! ;)
