  • In this time of year-end holidays a huge ball of Christmas sits in the center of this place always busy.

  • Is of the same architect as the plaza mayor of Madrid and the taste of the architect is very noticeable. I recommend you go on a day hot and sit for a few seconds in the middle of the main square just to see all the buildings that surround the square. Precious OS and feel like the time is for. Then you can go to any bar in the square and try their delicious snacks. It is one of the favorite places in Salamanca.

  • Beautiful square with a lot of life and each exit or entrance takes you into a street with thousands of options. It is worth seeing the plaza at night with lighting.

  • The views were amazing but the staff was a little bit anoying. They were asking you so many cuestions that you coluldnt go to the room acurrately
  • Muy buen servicio
  • Lugar inmejorable, en plena Plaza Mayor. Muy recomendable!! Vistas muy bonitas
  • Fantastic location right by the Plaza, right in the middle of nightlife action. I personally loved the energy, but if you don't like late-night noise this may not be the place for you. Nice, clean rooms and a very friendly staff made this hostal great lodging for me and if I find myself in Salamanca again, this will be my first choice. For less-able folks, I'd like to add that there is no elevator! I had to carry my luggage up nearly 2 flights of stairs. Granted, I had a lot (studying abroad) but take warning if you can't do so.
  • Muy bien todo.
