4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

It's a very cozy place, just a few rooms, people are from all ages and you can find a lot of people from el Camino. The cheapest in town, I found a very good qaulity. Breakfast is good, plenty of space in the rooms and receptionist are absolutely adorable! Lidl around the corner is a plus.

Very good Hostel - especially in that price range. We stayed for one night. The staff were all incredibly friendly, and let us check in early (it was bucketing down with rain outside) as well as leave our bags for the day. Breakfast was basic, but very good considering it was included. An important thing to remember - this hostel... More

This was very clean and modern, with a good breakfast selection (as far as hotels are concerned) with fresh fruits, as well as the normal carbs. The beds were so comfortable and the rooms cleaned daily. Free tea and coffee were offered whenever guests wished. The only downfall was the temperature in our room. It was so hot, and the... More

It just took us 5min walking to come to the river on which along it´s a beautiful walk to the center (which also doesn’t take long – alternatively we could have also taken the metro). We spend there two nights for a very good price. The dormitories, bathrooms and everything else were absolutely clean and the beds were nice mattresses... More

This place is clean. I love it. Different options for sleep - I did 12 bed mixed dorm night one and 6 bed with only two people night two. Towels for rent. Nice kitchen. Not enough outlets in the rooms- especially in the 12 bed. Could use shelves in each bunk with an outlet. Breakfast was very simple and nothing... More

Good free breakfast and coffe and tea all day long! The common area is a comfortable place, there games, a TV, magazines- whatever you can think of to make a rainy evening more fun. They have lockers in the dorm rooms, shared bathrooms and showers. However, what puzzled me a bit, was that they did not have anything to cook..neither... More

Clean and tidy. Beds are very comfortable. Staff at reception are very helpful and friendly. Hostel has everything you can ask for (hairdryer, towels at 1.50€ for the whole stay, kitchen, etc.). Pipes can be a bit noisy during the night but overall very good experience

Friendly, helpful staff and a great atmosphere in the hostel. It's very clean and tidy with everything well organised. I was very happy with my experience and I would recommend this hostel to others. It's right by the river and well connected in terms of public transport.
