    It was really clean

    They have a policy where you can't use their facilities once you check can leave your bag until 8pm but that's it. All other hostels I've been in allow usage of facilities until whenever you want. Only the mexican guy who worked front desk was nice and helpful, the others didn't really care (even the guy in charge)

    Staff were lovely (wonderfully fluent in English!) and friendly. Comfortable bed. Sheets and blankets provided - all super clean. V good location for the bus station, and easy to walk to the park, Museo de Bellas Artes and the Guggenheim.

    A drunk man, reeking of booze, checked into the dorm I was in quite late. He woke us up in the night, harassing another lady in the room at full volume. I felt terribly vulnerable and threatened. Needless to say, you can't judge a hostel by its residents, but I was surprised they allowed him to stay without perhaps warning the other guests first. I didn't report this - I'm sure they would have been sympathetic had I done.

    I got there at 1am, gave me a top bunk Bed and sheets to make it in silence and in the dark, while everyone was sleeping, I couldn't finish... rain was so noisy that I left at 4am

    It was really clean, a thing in hostels is really important because of bedbugs & that kind of nasty critters.

    The shower was clogged

    Energetic and helpful staff! Mostly perfect.

    At 23:30, the night attendant brought 2 very noisy guests into my room, turned on all the lights, had along noisy conversation, left the door open for a very long time.

    Was a genuinely nice hostel

    The timers for the lights in the showers are shocking every 2 minutes your showering in the dark! But this is a minor dislike ;-)

    Lockers could have been a bit bigger.

    Nice people in the hostel. Very close to Tram and metro. Fairly close to Guggenheim. Easy to find.

    Very hot in rooms at night. Breakfast not very good, it was alright but no variation. Also, one of the staff stared at us when having breakfast (probably to make sure no one brings food with them) but it was really annoying and it was not fun having breakfast as you felt like you were being stared at.

    It was pretty cool, I was only there for a lay over because I was trying to get to Logroño but didn't have any probs at all while I was there. The internet was pretty fast considering there must have been 10+ people soaking it up and the location was perfect, right near to the bus terminals so I could make my morning bus easily.

    people were very quiet in the 12 person bedroom.

    I had to leave at 07.15 to the airport and breakfast started at 07.30. The staff would not let me use a water cooker for a cup of tea strictly before 07.30.

    One ladies toilet and one unisex for tens of girls is just not enough. I booked a bed in a 6-bed-room and I got a bed in a 10-bed-room.

    Very helpful staff with good English skills. Wifi

    Despite 24 hour reception you could not sit in the common area from 00.00 - 07.00 I was sat there in the dark using wifi Not using kitchen facilities or even lights But was told I had to go outside or to my room where others were sleeping

    The receptionists Laura and Herbert were helpful and friendly. The hostel was clean.

    Poor atmosphere, not because of the hostel but the guests didn't seem very sociable, I didn't speak to anybody in my two days there. Some of the plugs in the room or common area didn't work well. The shower drain was blocked.

    I just stayed for one night and had to take the plane the next day - the hostel is VERY close to the bus station. It was also no problem to leave my luggage until 4 o'clock, even the day I checked out.
