This hostel is brilliant - such a shame not every hostel can be like this! Room - perfect size, lots of storage area and comfy bed. Extra sheets too for when it's cold. Also has a heater. Bathroom - clean, hot water, area to hang clothes when taking a shower Kitchen - really well equipped and free fruit, tea and coffee all day Breakfast - really yummy. Choice between white or brown bread, yoghurt, cereal, pâte, dulce de leche, jam..! Really good. Location - close to supermarket and bus station, bus stops nearby to get to town. Overall a fabulous hostel with really friendly staff who are happy to help out with anything! Muchas gracias :D

The hostel is a 10 minute walk from the bus station and about 30 mins from the river front. The larger dormitory is a good size on two levels. Everywhere is clean and tidy. Although the showers are very small they have divided the space creatively so it's possible to use the loo when someone else is in the shower. There's a pleasant sitting area, wi-fi is working and breakfast good. The people on the desk speak English
