The location is superb - in a safe neighbourhood with a variety of restaurants to choose from within less than 5 mins. Free breakfast was a nice touch, spacious terrace was great to have breakfast on. However, the WiFi didn’t work in the room and despite having the windows closed, we kept being awaken by traffic and people screening outside, as well as the hostel noise. The staff made us feel like home though.
The Be Ok hostel is ideally situated in that it is about 5 minutes walk from the poblado metro stations and around the same distance from all the trendy nightlife in the poblado area. I arrived pretty late at night and was greeted by the front desk attendant who was friendly. Every morning there was a breakfast included which consisted if 2 scrambled eggs, toast and a coffee. Not a spectacular meal but considering the price of the stay, it was amazing to be included and it was definitely enough to hold over till lunch. I had a chat with the owner and they're in the process of renovating the unit and improving the space. I quite liked the rooftop patio and spent time chilling up there having breakfast and coffee. The bunk beds were surprisingly comfortable. I slept on 2 separate beds during my time there and never had problems getting quality shuteye even with my head near a window.
The washrooms were separate from the dorms and there were 3 different ones that I used and I never had to wait. A few improvements could be made. Placement of the ceiling fan in my room was a bit dangerous relative to the top bunk, the lockers were a bit difficult to close but I was never worried about the security of my belongings and the plug on one of the bunks didnt work but I'm pretty low maintenance so none of these things were deal breakers. The room. I stayed in was actually the smallest dorm and it was a bit cramped for all the different suitcases that my roommates had. The larger rooms would have been ideal. This was only the second time in my life that I'd stayed in a hostel and I did notice that the atmosphere was not as social as the previous hostel I'd stayed in Reykjavik Iceland but I would stay in a hostel again.
We had a private double room. The bed was comfortable the room was spotless and the shower had hot water. WiFi in the hostel was excellent. The hostel is located in a nice area close to restaurants and bars.
Room also has a TV with cable channels, and access to YouTube.
Bathroom is quite small. The fridge on the rooftop was locked. You have to ring a bell for someone to open it when buying drinks/beers etc.
Overall good hostel and would stay again.
Stayed here for four nights, the location and staffs were great. Good showers although a bit small. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. However it's quite noisy at night, from outside or the balcony upstairs. Couldn't get to sleep till after 12 with people chatting loudly, wish they have a curfew or an earlier quiet time to respect other guests. The breakfast was simple with two eggs and two pieces of white bread and coffee, if you eat a lot during breakfast please bring extra food.
be okay hostel is located in the ' manila ' district of poblano , very close to a huge exito supermarket and about 10 minutes away from the poblano metro station .
given the hostel only opened a few ago , everything in there still feels brand new like the towels or the kitchen utensils which is nice ....
it is quite a small place with only 2 private rooms and only 1 with private bathroom which is the one i rented . i found the room to be very comfy and nicely decorated , it had a window into the street which i always appreciate. it was perfect for one person but i think it ' d be a bit tight for 2 people . i can ' t comment on the dorms but everybody seemed to be quite pleased and i did not hear any complains .
the kitchen was located upstairs next to the outdoor terrace , it was modern and well equipped and it was nice to enjoy your meal al fresco ! this is also where breakfast was served which was nothing but scrambled eggs every day but the coffee at least was decent .
i agree that the staff was amazing , most every body spoke good english and was very helpful wherever you needed anything so kudos to all the staff !
i actually wanted to extend my stay but both private rooms were already booked for the following nights so i had no choice but check out . i don ' t know how this hostel compares to the other hostels around but i had no reasons to look any further , be okay was just fine for me and i think that you will enjoy your time there too !
