Insider Tip

The bunk beds are taller than most, so if you're not comfortable being high up try to snag a lower bunk.

There are daily and nightly activities including group dinners on the rooftop with cheap drinks at the bar. They also host flamenco shows and happy hours, so it's really easy to meet other guests.

The mattresses are high quality and you'll enjoy a good night's sleep here.
