This hostel is perfectly situated in the middle of the city centre, perfect for exploring this delightful city. It is a very quaint hostel, decorated beautifully and clean. There is a nice rooftop terrace but no kitchen or other communal spaces. We had a twin room with our own bathroom which was lovely and quiet! Best sleep of the holiday... More

Really great location in town just a few steps away from the most important attractions of the city. Friendly receptionist, clean and simple room just a little shame a wired noise coming from my bathroom which bother during the night. I would recommend it for a quick stop in Córdoba.

There was a sink in the room which is handy as there are only 2 bathrooms. The breakfast were good however there is no kitchen for... More

Basic hotel at a good price. Clean rooms and in the center of the city. However, there was a very bright light right outside our window and lots of noise from the courtyard. Also, there is wifi only in the lower floor by reception, not in the rooms. But if you're looking for a good deal, this is it!

We had a double room with shared bathroom and found that all facilities were clean and functional. It was great to have a little sink in our room so that we didn't have to hike to the bathroom all the time.

Excellent location, accommodation and service. The only small problem I've found is slow internet service: but when on holiday that can be overlooked. Although this place is located in a busy old town with tourists and locals on your doorstep, inside is quiet. Room was clean and comfortable. Service was exceptionally good. I would stay here again when in Cordoba... More
