The hostel was at a great location. Within walking distance to many tourist attractions. The staff is great and the atmosphere awesome! Only thing that they could improve is the cleanliness, in particular the bathrooms.

We booked a double room with private bathroom. No cold water at all in the shower, very old bed (you can feel the springs on your back..) and unfriendly staff. Probably other better hostels for this price.

I had a great time in Purple Nest! Staff was so nice and friendly. Breakfast was delicious with great coffee. I'll definitely come back. Everything was clean and in the evenings there was always something...like paella night or BBQ. Drinks at the bar are cheap!

Cute, nice small hostel, very close to the centre.Perfect if you need to spend a couple of nights. The bus station is right in the front and a lot of restaurants and bars around. Very helpfull stuff and the small "terrace" on the back wins it all :)

Being new to the Hostel world I didn't know what to expect. I was happy when we arrived at the purple nest it was better than my expectations. We arrived earlier than check in so they minded our bags until our room was ready. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is someone always on the desk. There was a mistake...
