I stayed twice”

My favourite hostel in BA. I stayed in a dorm with an ensuite, it wasn't cramped, everyone had plenty of space/air. Definitely a cut above the rest, which explains the price (that said, I rate Portal del Sur which is cheaper than this one and is clean, safe and great). If you're a GoT fan, you can watch it on the Circus Hostel tv (they have HBO) on Mondays. The place just felt modern, clean, spacious, etc, so if you're wanting to stay in a nice place after doin the rounds of hostels during your trip, but don't have the money to stay in a hotel, I'd comsider this place. It doesn't have a kitchen area that you can use, but there are plenty of good eateries around about the place. I stayed here twice because I rated it.

Excellent”

A budgeted hostel with hotel environment and service. The hostel was locating a bit far away from the city centre, but public transportation are easily accessible from the hostel; and few restaurants are just around the corner. The hostel environment is neat, tidy and very comfortable with everything you need (wifi, airport transit, common area, pool ...) and they even have interest classes such as tango and yoga arranged in the hostel. Staff were very friendly and helpful too!
