We've been just disappointed by this "hostal". Comments before our stay here made us choosing this hostel doubtless, in fact a couple of friend of us had what they guessed, but for us it has been different. They gave us a "room" that clearly had been a lumber-room before, the only one situated in the owner's home zone, without the number on the door (unlike the rooms in the hostel zone) and definitely smaller than the standard hostel room. For this reason, we always had to pass through the owner's part to reach our room, with closed doors and without any lights in the evening. We had really to pass in their living room when they were having dinner too! Terrible! Every morning at 7 we have been awaked by kitchen's noises and by owners' loud voices. There was only one socket of energy in our "room", unlike the standard hostel room in which there were three of them. The bathroom was really smaller and less spacious. In our room there wasn't a shade to cover the morning's light, but only a curtain! The owners left the window open everyday after the cleaning activity, making the room colder than the standard one. Even the bed was smaller than the standard! That's absurd! Everyday the room was invaded by the terrible smells of the owners' kitchen: one day spicy mussels' smell, another one fried doughnuts' smell. The air inside was unbreathable. Our "room" was also really darker than the standard one, in fact our lamp holder had only one working lamp on four! Ridiculous! And lastly, one morning we found a big beetle on the tiny desk of the room, and the wi-fi doesn't work because the access key is wrong!
We're feeling teased and really bad treated by this hostel, for this reason we DO NOT recommend it at all.
