It was the staff that made this hostel -- really warm and friendly, very patient with our rudimentary Spanish and making every effort to help us.
The rooms are kept very clean and are good value for money but vary quite a bit. Room 3 was on the ground floor and while absolutely fine for the price didn't get any sun and sometimes got a bit musty. The second time we stayed we got given a family room (room 10) which was much nicer up at the top of the building. The location is pretty good - just round the corner from La Mariscal but on a nice quiet street.
The breakfasts, which are included in the room price, are OK (juice, scrambled egg, toast, banana, tea/coffee) and they offer free luggage storage.
My only complaint would about be the free Internet access - most of the time the computer wasn't working and if it was then it was painfully slow.
