Hello Robert, Thanks for share your experience in Centre Esplai Hostel. I'm apologize because your expectatives were not that you expected. This is a hostel with bunk beds in all the rooms, and it's how we publicate in all the webs sites, so I'm surprise for your request in double room. In reference to the restaurant, it's true it was...

Fast and easy and reachable either by metro or taxi, since located only 2 km from airport. However the price of metro ride (only 2 stations from Terminal 1) is quiet high - 4.50... More
