The receptionist Juz es la mejor!

It was great but they don't turn the ac on until 8. Other than that the staff is really nice and helpful. It is located about a two minute walk from the famous clock and everything else is pretty close.

Very solid hostel
Overall, very solid for a hostel. Doesn't feel dirty like most. Clean, with a pool, nice rooftop. My biggest complaint would probably be that the front desk controls the AC in each room. If you leave, they will go in and shut it off without asking you. Depending on the person at the front, they may be flexible on this if you ask. Annoying but fairly minor overall.

Nice option inbetween hotel stays
I booked Hostal Castellon for two nights before my stay at another hotel. I wasn't expecting much but it was a wonderful experience! The hotel staff were amazing. They gave wonderful directions and info on things to do and where to eat around the neighborhood. They were also a big help when my CC wouldn't go through. They were patient and helped me contact my bank. I had a private room which was clean and comfortable. I was very happy with my stay.

Did the job
Average hostel. The rooms were tidy but small, with very dim lights and no windows. I had to use a torch just to get around the room. Security is pretty lax, you are not given a key to the room or even an identifying wristband as in other hostels.
