Description

The Hostelz.com Review

Hostel Osio is located in the heart of Córdoba's historic center. The hostel surrounds a lush and lovely courtyard, giving guests a taste of typical Andalusian architecture. Good Wi-Fi is available throughout the hostel, including the rooms; however, there are no computers available for guest use. Breakfast is included and consists of coffee, tea, cereal, bread, and spreads. The hostel is cleaned daily.

The Location

From the bus or train station, take bus number 3 to San Fernando street and exit the bus at the "El Portillo" bus stop. From there it is an eight-minute walk to the hostel. The hostel provides excellent walking directions and is easy to find, despite Córdoba's winding streets. Córdoba is small and everything is within walking distance of the hostel -- bars, restaurants, and shopping as well as touristic spots like the Great Mosque are just a few minutes walk away.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel has a four- and six-bed dorm room and a variety of private rooms available. The six-bed dorm is adequate but a bit cramped. The rooms have air conditioning, which is crucial in Córdoba's hot months, as well as ceiling fans and lockers. The beds and bedding are comfortable. There is one shared bathroom off the kitchen. While the bathroom is large and regularly cleaned, its location requires guests to go through the kitchen to get to it. The shower has good water pressure and hot water. While we were there, there was an issue with the water not coming out of the shower. The hostel staff addressed the issue immediately.

Common Spaces

There is a large communal kitchen available for guest use that contains a large dining table. The hostel also has a large courtyard with tables and chairs. Hostel Osio is not a party hostel; the atmosphere is a bit subdued, though such things often depend on who is there at any given time. The courtyard is a nice place to hang out and it is possible to meet other travelers; however, the overall feel of the hostel is more quiet and relaxed.

Summary

Overall, Hostel Osio is a good choice of hostel for your stay in Córdoba. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is ideal.
