I have been staying at the Urban house hostel for a bit more than a week now. I had not read the reviews before staying here so was very surprised to read them now and hear such awful things about the place. The owner is clearly putting more time into the place and I can see a drastic difference now...

Stayed here for 3 nights around the time of Pamplona Bull running was incredibly busy, unorganized and loud. Small and ridiculously hot rooms but has a great central location close to everything you need.

Ugly ugly hostel. Luckily I was only there 1 night because the wifi didn't work. Bathrooms are the worst I've seen in a hostel. Super uncomfortable beds. Though if you're not fussy it is a good location and good security for a hostel. Need the pass code to get in and then a key for your floor and seperate key...

ARRIVAL: Reception was filthy, they could't "decide" what our rate per night was, room was not ready, had to leave and return in 2 hours, returned and we were ignored for a while before one of the girls in reception walked (she was nearly running whilst we had all our bags) us to a totally different location, virtually threw the...

How can I put into words just how terrible this place is. Location wise it's great but the condition of the hostel is those of third world countries. The showers are filthy, the entire time we stayed there (5 nights) they weren't cleaned once!!! The floors were on an angle and the ceiling looked as though it was going to...

Very expensive for the condition and state of the hostel. At the time I stayed there one of the toilets was out of order, it had a used condom in it...shows the kind of people this place attracts. The bathrooms were also filthy, the cleaners would it seem to refuse to clean the showers. Rooms were fine, not overly secure...

We booked a "Deluxe" twin private room at this place because it was the Busabout recommended hostel. This place is horrendous. The "Deluxe" room we have is essentially a prison cell; actually I think you get more room in a prison cell. All of the furniture and rooms are old and mouldy and the walls are paper thin so you...

I stayed here with my boyfriend and regret it tremendously. We have travelled for over 2 months and this is the worst hostel we have seen! Not to mention it was the dearest! The reception is so slow and so unorganised. Yet they had at least 4 workers in the office?! They could not find our booking and sent us...

I had already prebooked this accommodation when I had read the reviews and heard from people who had already stayed. Needless to say I was not looking forward to it. Granted the hostel is old and run down. There is mould in the bathrooms, beds are small and the furniture is old and workout, however, it is liveable. You get...

Let's start with the only good thing: location, but not really. Where to begin with the bad things. We arrived our 4 bed room in the end was a 6 bed room and we were charged the same. complained got back 2 euros per person?! The room smelled like vomit for the first half day. Complelty overprized even for the...
