When we arrived, there was nobody at the reception. Later we found the patriarch in a towel in a back room and the son in the street between the 2 parts of the property. Seems he is there because it's the only place where the wifi signal could be found. Needless to say we didn't get internet that night. As weary travelers we didn't fancy squatting in the streets like him. The patriach winked at me and called me "guapa" meaning good looking. I should be happy with the complement except it gave me chills. Read earlier reviews about this aspect of the property.....
The Hostal's location is great; near the Mezquita and other sites and restaurants. The room we had was quite big with private bath, air-con, tv, table and chairs, and a sofa.
The sofa is probably a sofa-bed to turn the room into a triple. But it was not clean. We didn't touch it. The rest of the room wasn't exactly dirty but could probably use more maintenance. The towels looked clean but there were no toiletries. We didn't dare use the blankets in the wardrobe. Luckily we brought our own. It is family run with the women folk doing the cleaning in the morning but also looking after the kids. Toys were strewn at the reception. Everything is messy there, including a backroom with the electronics, with wires running all over the place. That part of the property was dark and dingy but the part on the other side of the street was bright, airy and has lots of beautiful flowers. We had cheaper and nicer hostals on our trip. Would not return.
