We only stayed 1 night (thank god!) the room we stayed in was a 10 bed mixed dorm with 2 ensuite bathrooms. 1 of the washbasins in the bathroom had a plumbing issue which we reported as soon as we checked in and found out but was never fixed. None of the sockets in the room had power, so we... More

We were stuck on the streets at night with nowhere to go (everything closes early on week days) and a nice gentleman guided us to this hostel. The night guard was kind to arrange us two beds in an otherwise full booked hostel. Nice, basic room and friendly and smiling staff greeted us on the check out in the morning.

The check in reception area is in the kitchen, therefore, not much privacy. When we went into our room (private double room) we had a quick freshen up with some deodorant/body spray to go out for something to eat. We heard an alarm and then the Spanish guy that had checked us in knocked at our door. He stepped into... More

The current staff were so welcoming to me: we chatted for hours, ate dinner together and so on. They were keen to make my stay there the best it could possibly be. Centrally located too and an easy walk to the town’s various attractions. Keep it up!
