  • I came from Miami for a two week holiday, I orignally was just going to just stay in this hostel for 2 or 3 days until i found a place, but the front desk recepionist Juan, convienced me to stay my whole stay there, he said that it was centrally localized and had a great friendly environment. He was right, it was no more than 15mins from every main attraction. They have a great happy hour, 2-4-1 caipirinhas, and the other recepionist sandra was very good at recommending places to see and do

  • The room was crammed with sixteen beds in a space that was far too small. Having bunk beds which are four beds high is simply a nuisance. They aren't easy to climb for the person on the top, and it will always awake the person on the bottom. The overcramming of beds for the space available made for a terrible sweaty stink in the room which was quite frankly unhealthy and the room wasn't even at full capacity. Advice: treat the guests with a bit more respect in have 2 or MAX 3 stack bunk beds

  • The staff was friendly.. the guests that happened to be there were all nice and friendly.. Wifi worked great. Nice common area.. AC in rooms, warm water.. Very good breakfast.. Very great value for what you pay. Highly recommended. I ad read reviews about bites and plastic wrapped mattresses.. Didnt see or witness either one.
