The hostel is located conveniently within a walking distance from all the attractions while still on a quiet side street. The Cathedral and the shopping streets are about 10 mins away and although it's possible to take a bus to Alhambra the walk isn't too long either (and you get to see the city at the same time). The double room was moderate with a double bed, desk and a wardrobe (plus a tv that we couldn't get to work) and it had it's own bathroom. It was clean but there was no hand soap. The room was rather cold at night as we weren't aware of any heating system. Our room was facing a small courtyard so there was no noise at all. Actually, the hostel itself was really quiet. They have wifi, but for some reason it wasn't working well. There's no kitchen and no breakfast, but there are some cafes and a mini market (Opencor) closeby. There's also no common room so it's hard to get to know any other people who are staying there. Not too impressed by the staff, we were just handed the key and shown to the room, without much talking. There are no brochures about any attractions and no free maps. They did't ask if we needed any help, advice or tips about the city... which has been normal in other hostels. All in all the hostel is good value for your money if you're looking for a calm place just to sleep.
