stayed here on a college trip in march 07. as soon as we pulled up outside, most of us seemed a bit disappointed.
the outside decor was planks of wood, which covered the windows- we were worried in case there was a fire and we would be trapped inside!
the rooms were okay, slightly cramped. there were three bunk beds, a set of lockers, desk, shower room and seperate toilet. they were kept generally clean, though we noticed the shower was not cleaned every days, and with 6 of us using it, it got prettty nasty. so we asked reception to clean it every day, which they refused to do. we ended up buying some cleaning supplies of our own and doing it ourselves. there was also alor of graffiti on the bunk beds.
the food- dont even get me started! i must have put on weight that week, due to eating too much junk food from take aways! there was no way i was eating what the hotel called 'food.' it was like al military operation- you grab a tray, queue up and the dinner lady slaps a bit on your plate. breakfast was a croissant, a cake and a few other things. dinner changed every night and there was usually only one or two choices of dish. most of it was paella type things. if you dont mind trying new things, then you would probably be alright! the dinner ladies were young girls and they we so moody. they shouted at you if you tried to take another croissant for breakfast.
the location wasnt too bad. on a main road, opposite a shopping mall. so it was easy for us to go to the shops. the metro station was only around a 10-15 minute walk away as well.
ok, so for what we payed the hostel was ok, but standards could definately be higher. would probably suit young people on a budget.
