Liked: Great people! It's a friendly atmosphere and perfect for people who are traveling alone because everyone is so social. The hostel also has a walking tour which was great. I went with Erica who was very animated and fun. I especially loved the private flamenco show (with a free sangria) that Pablo arranged. Overall, it was a great experience! Wish I could have stayed longer!

Disliked: Angela left no negative feedback.

Liked: great common area and kitchen. Great atmosphere there too - really easy to meet people. location is top notch and is easy to find. reasonably priced with comfortable beds. would come back here!

Disliked: Nothing in particular - However the activities offered by the hostel were pretty average. In particular the walking tour and tapas night were pretty disorganized and average. I would recommend travelers to do the Sandemans free walking tour instead and to do their own tapas thing - more value for money and better

Disliked: This hostel sucks. It's entirely unclean, old and our room smelled like butthole because there's no ventilation and it's not possible to open the window.

Liked: The staff here were the best I had in all of Spain . Really friendly , and always willing to help you find the right buses etc , or other places you need to find . One staff member Jacob would remember your name even with so many travellers their . That's quite impressive . And I always saw him helping people or cleaning the kitchen . Another staff member who I saw when I checked out , I don't recall his name but he was so helpful with telling me which metro to take and the cheapest buses . He just seemed really hapoy to , was singing and smileing and had such good energy and vibes that makes you smile .

Disliked: This hostel is more suited to travellers aged 18-24 . It really is a big big party hostel and not a place for chilling . It's good if that's what your looking for . It's pretty noisy in the dorms because alot of the travellers are young they don't realise room is for sleeping and lounge for drinking . The lights were on till 12.30 . And people come home at 7ish and it's noisy again . But quiet all day as they sleep . So if your a young traveller wanting to party it's a great place

Liked: Comfortable bed compared to other hostels, good and cheap paella, excellent location, fully equipped kitchen.

Disliked: It was a bit of a party hostel - not much middle ground for people who aren't hermits but just want to chill with sangria and a few beers. Not a prude but didn't particularly enjoy hearing other guests have sex in the dorm.

Liked: I liked the staff working there, in particular Felipe and Alejandro were very helpful, they even allowed me to charge my phone/camera at the reception desk. I love that there was FREE Churros for breakfast! and I like that there is a kitchen facility with fridge and freezer, and there are 3 computers and FREE (and good) Wi-Fi connection. I like that they could print my boarding pass for me.

Disliked: Nothing in particular, but maybe the bathrooms can somehow have more places to hang clothes?
