Supposedly, according to their website, the taxi should cost no more than 12 Euros. Since the taxi had a meter, we didn't ask how much. Bad choice again, as we were charged 23 Euros, and dropped off across a busy intersection from our hostel. Although this hostel was nice enough and clean enough, most of the staff didn't speak good English or Spanish, the WiFi was down at the time, our lockers didn't come with locks, and the price was a good bit higher than usual, they did have a soda and coffee machine, a decide lounge area, and free breakfast. Since we'd arrived at the hostel around 1pm, and they didn't allow us into our rooms (separate male and female dorms) until 3pm. Breakfast was okay, especially considering it was free (included in the room price, so I guess not really free!). We had coffee/cappuccino, breakfast rolls with butter and jam, yogurt, and a plate of very decent cheese and chorizo.
