The doors maybe open, but basically all you're allowed to do after midnight is sleep. This is an issue since it is Spain and I never ate before 9pm and never got back to the hostel before 1pm. The only wifi is in the lobby or kitchen & the only place with outlets to charge your devices is the kitchen which closed at midnight. Due to time zones, I needed to call at 2am when everyone was asleep & could hear me because the common area is open to the upper floors. Staff was great, but the place was not very clean & in disrepair. If the terrace & kitchen were kept open and had wifi throughout, I could overlook the unkempt building.
I felt like I had a curfew again at 38. I was assigned the top bunk for 5 days and the two days I had a roommate they placed them in the bunk below me rather than the other bed in the room. The beds were basic twins that served their purpose, but the bunks were very creaky. The shower was okay, but leaked water all over and the "towels" they provided were disgusting. My first towel was crusty and full of holes. The next was crusty and they left it there for 3 days. They only provide a light blanket which is not cleaned. You turn in your sheets, but they do not wash the blankets or provide covers for them. This is a gross practice.
When the kitchen is open, it is great. Fully equipped and even has tea, coffee & sugar provided. Outlets for your technology abound. It's the best room in the house. The terrace is pretty, but not comfortable. A good place to gather, but if we could hangout & check internet, more people would probably spend time there. Cushions would be a plus.
Again, great staff. Very helpful and always smiling- I can't say enough good things about them, but next time I'm in Sevilla, I will try another hostel.
