Liked: Free Unlimited Breakfast. Nice Lounge to hang out. Good common room.

Disliked: Too much people in one room. It was dificult to work in the room as the door made a loud noise when some one came in. If some one put on the lights it would be central and disturbing everone. Pretty expensive compared to the prices we were given. Would recommend if you have no other economical option

Thanks for your reply! When you make a reservation in a 12 bedroom you can not pretend be like in a private room. If the people turn on the light or open the door, we can't make anything. The room has enough space, natural light, ventilation, lockers...We think 16€, included breakfast, sheets, free coffee/tea all day, wifi...it is not expensive. How much do you want to pay? ;) For us is a pleasure you think in our hostel 4 months after you stay here! jaja :) Anyway, thanks for coming!

Liked: Great place: clean, nice, even there was some nice smell in the reception and "living room" area. I wish all places in Spain would be like that.

Disliked: Maybe it was too far too walk (like 20-25 minutes, I guess) from railway station, as I had quite a huge luggage. But overall not that bad, considering the bus station is closer and that all the cool monuments are close to the hostel.
