    Stayed with 3 friends for four nights. The place was safe and clean which is the main thing in judging a hostel in my opinion. Room was way too small for six people, the A/C could only be activated via reception. Beds were rather flimsy....More

    It's just a regular hostel, nothing amazing but not bad at all. Breakfast could be better and rooms are quite small. The location is actually it's best feature, very near to touristic attractions and 2 metro stations.

    Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a
    different country ... except it's hard to tell which
    one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with

    ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
