The best hostel I stayed in , during a visit to Spain . Marked comfort down as I would like to see two pillows or at least one fluffy one . Security I would of liked to have seen a lockable safe in the room. Overall good sized private room and very clean . No usb charging points so you’ll need a Spanish plug .

Problema del ruido. Hasta las 12h30 la primera noche no paro los gritos ni los portazos . La segunda à las 2h de la mañana, después de avisar una vez a recepción, y salir 3 veces à pedir por favor que bajaran la voz,.La última vez 15 adolescentes que se habían reunido en frente de los ascensores en el pasillo central, sentados hablando à la 1h30 de la mañana. Entonces cuando se fueron aún costo que viniera el silencio. Para familias no recomiendo el albergue.

The location of the hostel is ideal for touring the city and visiting the beach. The parking facilities were excellent. Check in was very busy, but we did arrive during the peak season.
