Exceptional 10,0
My first hostal in Europe
Hostal had converters, hair dryers, and wine openers for people to borrow. Staff was polite and kept the place clean. They also gave me a cheaper price than what was listed on Had 3 private bathrooms for everyone to share but one out of the 3 had black spots and idk if that is mold. Place is located near public transportation and the Gothic Quarter is around a 25 minute walk. Neighborhood is safe and friendly.

Elaine, ie3 night trip with friends
Fair 4,0
We booked a room in this hostel with a private bathroom, for not a cheap price! when we arrived there it was no available room with private bathroom!! we were so tired with heavy luggages so accept to get a room without bathroom! the room was so small with a very small double bed!!! and heater in the room was not working and very cold during the night! And you could hear easily everything that happens in the next rooms. The water for showering was not warm enough! I give 2 stars because of: 1)very polite and nice staff (they don’t talk English) 2)clean bed sheets.
