Ha sido una experiencia maravillosa, mucho mejor de lo esperado. El grupo humano es excelente y las características del hostel permiten conocer gente muy distinta y de diferentes partes del mundo e interaccionar con ellos dentro de una atmósfera muy familiar, incomparable con otros hostels.

I was at the hostel for a month and I loved it immensely !!! Magda is one of the hostel employees and she is a spectacular person! I have been in Portugal for two weeks and I miss it already.
