“Ick”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

OK. This is a place where people go to die. Seriously. We arrived a night and this place was SPOOKY. The rooms was dismal and depressing, the beds uncomfortable, and the doors didn´t close all the way when you closed them and attempted to lock them with a flimsy lock. Luckily I was traveling with another person, because if I had been by myself I would have been scared to stay here. Yes, the building is a lovely relic, and at this price, you can´t expect much. But at least have a secure lock on the door! If you MUST stay here, don´t stay for more than 1 night! One plus I suppose is that it is in a good location. Also, the showers were decent.

The reviews for this place seemed decent and the building generally is, admittedly, beautiful. The man with the plan, whoever he was, was useless. An obnoxious rat who had better things to do - watch films on the reception's grandiose TV, play computer games, etc - than deal with the people who provided his hostel, or at least the hostel he works for, with inconvenient business. Any request was hard work, and 'Hola' was too much effort.

The cleaning staff seemed as if you'd insulted them whenever you had the poor luck of crossing paths with them. Their kids made the place seem like an oversized crèche in the day (the bambinos must've loved it!)

The (cold) showers took the phrase 'wet room' to a new level - if you stayed in too long, not only would the bathroom flood but the water would flow out into the main corridor.

There was NEVER any toilet roll in the men's - on my last night, annoyed, I went down and demanded some and was handed a roll.

When you book a hostel, especially at this price, you expect basic. But basic involves management that can be bothered to deal with you, toilet roll and a shower you can use without flooding the building.

Avoid.
