  • Great kitchen facilities, odd location (next to all the embassies?). Helpful staff but things seem a little unorganized (the wrong sheets were changed in our room, no trashcans in the room etc.). Not sure if there are quiet hours or not, so ask for a room not overlooking the yard if you are a light sleeper.

  • Pity that I was just here for 1 night, but the hostel was one of the best I had stayed on, during my entire journey!

  • Bathroom to people ratio seemed to be off - there weren't quite enough bathrooms, which led to excessive waiting. The women's shower also had the drain clogged with hair, so it probably needed to be cleaned more thoroughly.

  • Really nice place to stay, close to the city center, safe and clean, you'll feel like at home. WIFI does not work very well but for the rest I definitely recommand this hostel.

  • Very average. Wasn't good, wasn't bad - I've seen better hostels and I've seen worse.

  • Everything was really good, the only issue was the wi-fi that was not working very well, maybe because of many people was using.

  • Great staff very helpful, great wifi connection, close to Cuba street (10 min walk). Bed was comfortable and bedding was very nice. Right next to US embassy so you can't be much safer. Very nice and clean bathrooms. Laundry machines were great also. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in.
