I spent 6 weeks in this hostel while doing voluntary work in Cordoba and I had a really nice stay. The building is a bit old, but the people are amazing. It really felt like a family and they will do the best they can to make you feel home. I would recommend this place to everyone!

The place is extremely dirty. The mattresses are brown, blankets are full of dust and stains. They never change de shower curtain, dirt piles up in the shower floor, al bathrooms are nasty. Kitchen utensils have old food stuck to them and are rarely washed. The microwave stinks because its never cleaned . Sofas are broken and full of stains....

I had the most amazing time, stayed for almost 2 months and didn't wanted to leave. At the end I was basically part of the staff here. The people you get to know here are just amazing, they became like a family. I would recomend this Hostel over anything if you are young and traveling on a budget, also if...

This hostel is totally overpriced for what you get. The location is far away from the bus station and the other hostels and all the restaurants. The breakfast situation was terrible, I arrived at nine I clock in the morning and they told me there was nothing except bread(pictured). The beds weren't made the mattresses are old and blankets were...

Had a really good time here. The staff if friendly and easy-going, maybe a bit too much though. Not very well kept and clean, it's a very old building and they need to fix and restore a couple of thing. Yes, could definitely be better if they applied thenselves, but it's crazy cheap and close to everything. It is also...

The most filthy place I've ever had the misfortune to be in. I had a single room. It was miserable looking - white walls, one locker, single bed with an ancient looking mattress, curtain on one of the two windows. The miserable appearance would have been tolerable had the place been clean. There weren't even any hooks to hang my...

We intended to stay for only 3 nights in cordoba, but ended up staying 8 nights! It was such a familiar hostel, everyone from the staff was so friendly and helpful and made us feel at home! We've had a great time with all the people living there, they're all such warm-hearted and friendly persons! Make sure to ask them...

This is not a bad place to stay but not great either. It is spacious with a good kitchen and dining area. There is also a cool terrace where the smokers go, so all are satisfied. The bad part is all the long term stayers who like to think the hostel is theirs. This can be a bit intimidating if...
