Liked: Great location, very close to the centre of town. Great staff, really friendly and helpful and made us feel at ease straight away.

Disliked: Lack of light in the bedroom and was annoying that the room with the sink/cutlery was locked so would have to ask someone to open it for you each time.

Liked: This is an ideal hostel for one or two nights. It's great for saving money and for its proximity to the center. The beds were fine, rooms were clean and warm (in January), and staff was helpful. Don't expect a fancy place with free breakfast, a kitchen, common room, etc. You get exactly what you pay for- a place to sleep.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Lower price than other hostels in Salamanca. Fairly friendly staff and decent location, but it would be hard to be bad in such a compact city as Salamanca.

Disliked: 20 bed rooms was a bit much, and no safes or lockers, you had to pay extra to put things in the safe at the front desk, and pay extra to leave your luggage there past 12 PM when you check out. Not a very social hostel.

Liked: It was clean and wifi worked.

Disliked: It is extremely basic. Not only no breakfast but not even a small kitchen or fridge to keep food! no laundry, no common area. Room was really overheated even after I asked for it too be turned down so we sweated all night and and a terrible sleep. It's Ok for 1 night but would definitely recommend upgrading if you are staying any longer! Also no lockers.
