Amazing trip, amazing cities, great people, awful hostel
The trip as a whole was great. Got to see a lot and experience a lot. The add on activities I choose to take part in were amazing. I skipped the bike tours and cooking class but those who decided to go to those events really enjoyed them. The hostel and hotels were pretty average, those lucky few ended up practically getting an APARTMENT to themselves. The last hostel in Madrid was by far the only negative experience on this trip. They seemed very unorganized, the doors wouldn't open, I had trouble sleeping because I kept getting bit by something, and at one point there was some random guy not from contiki in our room. This led to a large number of people just walking out and getting a room at the much nicer looking hotel down the block.
