Given that I booked this hotel last minute I received an excellent rate (not sure I would have been equally happy paying full price). As a solo traveler it can at times be hard to find good single room rates so I was pleasantly surprised that this hostel had single rates and even better on arrival finding out it was not a box room. Further it was great to see that staff had considered my request of a room with a balcony and I had nice views onto the street below. Unfortunately the benefit of having a street facing room can become a downside at night as the road is busy til early hours in the morning. Not a problem if you are a night owl like myself but for others it could get too much. Shame that the TV was only Spanish, no satellite channels available. The staff were friendly and relaxed in their approach but do not expect an information desk, which is fine if you are happy being independent. Most of the time there the desk seemed unmanned. Personally this was not a problem for me. The bed quality was slightly on the cheap side but totally acceptable for the rate. Loved the little touches of fresh towels and toiletries available daily. Excellent WiFi. Only downside was that storage rooms were open most of the day, not the prettiest sight and laundry and cleaning trolleys stood in corridors. Maybe I notice these details more running a hotel myself.
I would definitely stay here again. The location to all the sites is a winner.
