It's hard to not like a hostel that is only a few blocks from the bus station but yet is located on one of the most quaint streets I've ever seen. The neighborhood is safe and quiet and perfectly located for getting around most of the best sights and places in Valladolid. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They have a small above-ground pool that my son practically lived in any time we weren't walking around the lovely colonial town. It was a great way to cool down.
Only a couple of cons for this place: The beds were wrapped in thick plastic which meant sheets did not stay on them very well. Made things somewhat uncomfortable. Also, staff could be a little more considerate of the early morning hours and remember that people on vacation, traveling, etc., typically don't get up at 7 AM, so not doing yard work outside their bedrooms, not blasting their favorite morning telenovela, etc., would help the stay be just a bit more comfortable. Overall, though, I really didn't feel these issues were big enough to affect my rating.
