TravelPod Member ReviewsCordoba Centro Córdoba
Cordoba is a great city, not very big but beautiful buildings, gardens and city center. I spent two days in Cordoba and slept at Funky Cordoba hostels. The room was for 2 people, and it looked a hotel room, we had our own bathroom with everything in it! The breakfast was also good and cheap, i would recommend it to everyone. Nice, cosy and cheep hostel ;)
