The staff were incredibly rude, impolite and unfriendly. One except was Lisa who was an awesome lady and we had a good chat. She was the only other exception. Facilities are below average, no real kitchen even though it's advertised. Very few bathrooms and showers... Luckily the hostel was quiet. Other than its excellent location there is nothing else going... More

My initial impressions weren't great - while the hostel is a comfortable walking distance from the bus station, located in the city centre and relatively easy to find, I arrived during siesta and the hostel was shut. A closer examination showed that while the booking website said check-in was 12pm til 10pm, the fine print on the actual booking indicated... More

When I stayed only 2 other people were in the hostel so for me during that quiet time the 3 showers and 2 toilets were fine and always clean. Staff were friendly and caring. Dorm was clean but if you were looking for a good nights sleeps with the hostels great location it's very noisy with the street below. Locker... More

You get what you pay for. It was very clean and in a great location. Breakfast was decent, but it took some finagling to actually get it. Wifi was decent, and there were in-room lockers. It was a little cold at night, and you could definitely hear everything going on in the street below, but I guess that makes sense... More

Not great, okay for just one night. The doors didn't have locks, so anyone could go into your room and there were no lockers. It also wasn't very clean, and there were no soap or towels/hand dryers in the bathroom. And it was very cold at night! Other than that good location and wifi, fine for just one night.

This is a cool little hostel. Located a few floors up in an old building in downtown. GREAT location right in the heart of Murcia just steps away from the cathedral. Nice clean facilities. Laid back atmosphere. Nothing really special, just a good place to spend the night,

I woke up at 4am by catching a bed bug on my face, then I found more on the bed and blanket. I could not sleep well for the following week because of itchy. The bitten spots are still clear on my legs after a month, and I need to wash all my stuff, the refund is not enough for... More

Terrible hostel. I stayed 4 nights. No cooking facilities other than a microwave, a kettle and a toaster. There is a list of rules they make you read when checking-in (but don't post on the internet). You aren't allowed to eat or drink in your room. I think this is so they don't have to clean as often. There is... More

So, the ONLY thing that is good about this hostel is the location - it is excellent, right on the main street and walking distance to anything you could want to see in Murcia, not very far from the bus station either. It was only 14.70 euro a night, so you can·t really complain about it too much as it... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to Cabo de Gata. No problems at all. We didn't have a reservation and the man at the reception was really helpful (and British, although he can speak fluent Spanish), let us choose our own beds and even offered us a free drink when we arrived. Comfortable beds, clean linen. A... More
