Estancia perfecta. Equipo muy amable, desayuno gratuito y servicios adecuados. Aún así, como malo destacaría que es el único albergue en el que me he alojado donde no guardan el equipaje de manera gratuita, disponen de unas taquillas de pago... Tampoco me gustó que en las habitaciones hacia una calor totalmente excesiva, así que las ventanas tenían que estar abiertas durante todo el día para no asfixiarte, un derroche total.

Nice hostel, although there was a lot of problems with the toilets/bathrooms... The beds were also very hard

overall good for the price. Breakfast selections were good. The room I was in was quite, even though the other three girls were talking loudly, but once they are asleep, it was nice and quite.
