It is what you can expect from a cheap hostel. Our room was acceptable, it was a bit hot and we had a ceiling fan to cool us down, but it did not help much. There are 3 shared bathrooms in to hostel so sometimes there was quite a line to use it. Breakfast is included, coffee or tea and...

Good: - chilled environment - good location - supermarket two blocks away - fairly ok equipped kitchen - good wifi - bathrooms cleaned regularly - very nice staff - breakfast ok, some...

Stayed in this hostel for one night and why we ever gave it a chance in the first place I don't know!! We've seen some grimy places but this is something else! The dorm smelt of unwashed feet and people were actually living in there. The kitchen was totally disgusting - dishcloths not washed or changed in months, the cupboards...

We had a good experience in this hostel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the free breakfast was nice (hot chocolate, coffee, tea, milk, sweets, corn flakes, oranges), the location is very good, close to the bus terminal and to the center. The living room is very cozy, with a nice view on the streets, pool and tennis table....

Great Hostel and very friendly staff! You get this really home-like feeling when you stay here. It's more a big house than a hostel. The hostel is has a kitchen you can use and big bathrooms. The dorms are fine and spacious. Only make sure you leave the window open at night for an unwanted musty smell. The price is...

We stayed in the dorm for a couple of nights, which was good. The livingroom, kitchen and patio are spacious and clean. Good breakfast. The owner is an awesome guy and the staff is friendly. Don't forget to make a bbq! Tranquillo vibe.
