I stayed here after booking flights a week in advance on a spur of the moment thing. One of the cheapest hostels I could find as I was on a budget. The staff were incredibly friendly, to the point of helping me with my Spanish and Catalan and advising us on nearby bars and restaurants. The room I stayed in... More

My friend and I have been staying in hostels for the past few weeks all through Spain and France. The number one issue is the guy that works here comes across nice at first and has great English, but definitely has anger management problems. We are two 20-something girls and today we came back to our room to find a... More

After booking this place last minute based on price I realized what horrible mistake I had made, The staff here are not helpfull at all, the faclities are lacking. The shower is not design for a normal sized person and there is no privacy to speak of in regards to the showers, One power point for a room of 6... More

Like other reviews I would add weight to this just being an overall poor option. It feels very sterile. It probably was a hospital and the bright graffiti style makeover makes it even less like a home or hotel. All facilities are poor but do exist, breakfast, showers, toilets, pay lockers. I found a guy at reception that was very... More

We turned up at this hostel which for one was a lot further out of the main hustle and bustle of where you want to be. We were obliged to pay upfront for all of our nights stay before even looking at out room. It was horrific - our dorm mates had been sick everywhere and there were booze bottles... More

The bathroom was horrible, i couldn't stand taking a shower there with the courtains...incredible and some guys taking the shower... More

This is definitevly the dirtiest hostel I have ever seen. Just filthy, dirty, and disgusting. Absolutely NO noise insulation, sleeping without earplugs is absolutely impossible. The served breakfast is pure [--]. AVOID THIS DAMN HOSTEL AT ALL COST.

This hostel is rubbish. The rooms are not ventilated well, bathroom is TINY and so mouldy - i actually felt like i was dirtier coming out of the shower. The mgmt had told the other people in the dorm I was staying in that they had it to themselves their whole stay. Needless to say, when they came in late,... More

We were on tour with a group of friends. We were all piled into rooms with three bunk beds. It was very tight even without the cases. The hyper colour walls of the room screen school camp and the toilet connected to the room was gross. The showers weren't so good. BYO own rung and towel. Also the guy behind... More
