Liked: Its not a party hostel, wich for me is really good, it has an atmosphere of conversation and get to know people, so its really easy to hang out the city with other travellers. It has its own bar (with really good prices), wich is really awesome. The location is excelent, since its a little outside of the tourist area, you get can get cheaper prices for food or anything you need.

Disliked: A lot of rooms (mine for example), are outside of the area with the reception, i mean it has another address, its about 20 meters from the main hostal (still is really clean, but with no common areas). The attitude of the personal is nothing outstanding. When i arrived i was only expecting a map and some recommendations, wich a didnt got, i just got a "its not checking time", i had to wait for another person to arrive at the reception, who was actually kind of surprised that i didnt got a map in my arrival. That situation is understandable because its a big hostel and people can, and will, get tired at some point, but still, it was unpleasent.
