The location is convenient- a short walk to the city and an easy walk to Salamanca. The toilets and showers are mixed male and female and they are fairly sketchy at best. There is no kitchen or TV room or general meeting area exclusively for people staying in the hostel. The dorms are mainly mixed - there is a fenale dorm but no male only dorm. The hot water is difficult to regulate in showers - I was cold in summer, I can only imagine gow cold it is in winter.
