Disliked: This place is just dirty.., far away from city center, close to the beach but it's not most beautiful part of the beach. I felt there unsafe and stuff seems to do nothing with this atmosphere..And you can have there breakfast but I didn't want to stay in their kitchen at all :( and I'm not picky person! If you can spend few euros more, do it and book other place!

Liked: We had pre-booked two beds in a 4-bed-room but because the hostel was over-booked we had to spend two nights in a crammed 4-bed-room belonging to one of the staff. However, as a compensation we were put into a 2-bed-room the third night (without having to pay more). The bathrooms were cleaned regularly. The staff was friendly. The location was perfect to go to the 101 Sun festival (at the Estadio de Atletismo) or to the beach. You don't have to leave the keys at the hostel while going out during the day.

Disliked: The over-booking problem. It would have been good to know that "shared bathroom" means you have to share it not only with the other persons in your room but with all people living on one floor, e.g. MANY people... Also we didn't see any lockers in our rooms. Wifi didn't work well in the rooms (probably it works better in the common room). The bed linen was dirty.
