Good concept. Lousy staff.
Initially I found the damning reviews of others hard to understand. A hostel quite new, nicely designed, in a wing of the main train station an almost perfect central location. As can be seen in the photos a large, but a bit sterile, lounge area overlooked from a gallery with a smallish guest kitchen.
Trouble started on check-in: the same bed should be wort 18 on day 1, 26 on day 2 and 36 on day 3 -- I passed the offer of the third.
(BTW all prices were much higher than quoted on search engines).
We are talking a bunk in 16bed dorm, which turned out surprisingly nice with curtains and lockers under the bed offers an surprising amount of privacy and even sockets on each. Soundproofing towards the station platform is good. WiFi works also in rooms. The Beds turned out to be very creaky. The showers/toilets are down the hall. They get cleaned once daily alas a whiff urine smell persists all the time. Towels are provided for a deposit; same is charged for the key-chipcards.
Asking about the pricing (my Spanish is good) and a receipt got a rather surely reaction but no satisfactory reply.
All further interactions with all other members of staff, 4 in all left the impression that one was being fobbed off.
The guest kitchenette, not more than a microwave, sink and a a few plates. The common area also serves as bar in is not accessible when it's closed. From afternoon well into night two this area was rented out for some kind of party that went on till late. Loud music made (the more expensive) sleep impossible. Asking at reception how long this would go on got the unfriendly advice to use earplugs.
Summary: design and concept 4 stars. Pricing and staff 2.
