Totally shocked at the owner. When I read the reviews I'd thought that you can't please everyone but this is completely out of order. Alex, who had been lovely apart from not being able to find my booking so having to hunt for a new bed, had said that I could store my bag in the room for free on...

The staff here were unfriendly, I was greeted rudely at the front desk. The showers were tiny and no soap in the bathrooms. The rooms weren't nice at all, another guest said she had booked an all female dorm, however woke up to the sight of two males sleeping in her room. There was not a great atmosphere at all...

I had a blast in The Cathedral Hostel! I was immediately welcomed with a smiling face and a quick check in. The showers were small as was the kitchen facilities but the vibe around the place was really amazing. Because of the small size of the place it meant meeting people was easy and you could easily join forces to...

The staff were incredibly rude, impolite and unfriendly. One except was Lisa who was an awesome lady and we had a good chat. She was the only other exception. Facilities are below average, no real kitchen even though it's advertised. Very few bathrooms and showers... Luckily the hostel was quiet. Other than its excellent location there is nothing else going...

My initial impressions weren't great - while the hostel is a comfortable walking distance from the bus station, located in the city centre and relatively easy to find, I arrived during siesta and the hostel was shut. A closer examination showed that while the booking website said check-in was 12pm til 10pm, the fine print on the actual booking indicated...

You get what you pay for. It was very clean and in a great location. Breakfast was decent, but it took some finagling to actually get it. Wifi was decent, and there were in-room lockers. It was a little cold at night, and you could definitely hear everything going on in the street below, but I guess that makes sense...

Not great, okay for just one night. The doors didn't have locks, so anyone could go into your room and there were no lockers. It also wasn't very clean, and there were no soap or towels/hand dryers in the bathroom. And it was very cold at night! Other than that good location and wifi, fine for just one night.

This is a cool little hostel. Located a few floors up in an old building in downtown. GREAT location right in the heart of Murcia just steps away from the cathedral. Nice clean facilities. Laid back atmosphere. Nothing really special, just a good place to spend the night,

I woke up at 4am by catching a bed bug on my face, then I found more on the bed and blanket. I could not sleep well for the following week because of itchy. The bitten spots are still clear on my legs after a month, and I need to wash all my stuff, the refund is not enough for...
