“Welcoming staff right next to the popular La Mariscal”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

After finding myself stranded at 11pm from a prior reservation not working out the Blue House was a lifesaver. They have a tranquil vibe with a pool table fireplace and bar. The rooms are not great but the location and ambiance make this place worth checking out.

We stayed at the petite blue house, same hostel, different building. We just showed up on the day and they said they were full and sent us to this one. Fine by us, but for the next 3 days our room filled up with people who had booked at the other one but were sent there as the booking was not confirmed. Breakfast was good, not always on time though. Beds are very small, children's bunks almost. One girl was told she had to have a top bunk so the guy on shift could sleep in the bottom bunk. Noisy at the petite as it is on the main road. Kitchen is ok. Small tv room and some seating outside. Lots of other places for the same price.

relaxed hostel. staff let you do what you want despite the signs (no outside alcohol etc). decent brekky including yogurt, toast, muesli, juice and fruit. FIRE PLACE!!!!!! Great location in new town, near all pubs and clubs.
On our last day there was different staff that weren't the best, gave incorrect information and not very attentive. But the original were awesome.
Bad point is only 2 showers and not water disappears when both are in use..

Room Tip: Downstairs room is loud with squeeky beds Room 7 is best. no morning sun and non squeeky beds
