I love Via Via mainly because of the great staff they have, they are so friendly to locals and tourists. Every fridays they have live music which are great for dancing and the party there is fun. Besides that, their restauran is good and prices are decent. The place in general is very clean and has a lot of space....

I do not have a room at Via Via, but I go there daily. It is my favorite place to play pool. The staff is very friendly and greet me with a hand slap and fist bump along with a hug or a kiss from the ladies. The regular crowd that plays pool make their rounds to shake hands and...

What I liked was the atmosphere of the building and the bar. The bunk bed was not the best but I did have my own fan. The dorm had its own bathroom. Breakfast was included. Its a bit pricy ($10) but it was worth it location wise. The disco bingo on monday was good fun too

My husband and I had a private room with private bathroom here for three nights. The hostel itself is nice with plenty of hammocks and areas to chill out in but as others have mentioned it feels very impersonal. Nobody really appears to be running the hostel side of things, it's just like an add on to the restaurant. That...

Stayed here for three nights in a private room. Its more like a hotel, very good rooms, friendly staff, very good price with breakfast included. Dorms are also offered here. The area is good, everthing in walking distance (for example Cathedral & market less than 10 minutes). Restaurant & bar are up front with very good food, rooms are in...

First I must share that while I did not stay at the hotel, the atmosphere and friendly people all over Via Via made it very tempting. We stopped in for a Tona and played some pool then we were surprised by the turn out for what looked like "game night" with people playing a variety of games. Great energy, drinks...

I know everybody is different, but this place ticked ALL the boxes for me. Great bar, great communal area (and large), and clean spacious dorms. Good price, and includes a lovely breakfast and free coffee. A member of staff appears to be cleaning around the communal areas 12-hours a day. Staff always smiling. They also mix an awesome G&T.

Nice ppl, fine to just ride in with the bike through the bar and store it inside, good breakfast and coffee, good central location. Not noisy as dorms are out back with bar at front. Only one fail for me.. lumpy pillows made of rocks :(. Oh no kitchen either.

I did not stay at the hostel but came by for a beer or Ron almost everyday. The bar is great and located next to an atmospheric courtyard. Nice place to cool off, relax with reasonable prices, good service and great music.

“If you get the double bed room at the back of the hostel then you will be furthest from potential noises in the night and although there is no A/C the fans will likely suffice.”
