It was worth it for The money expent. Male bathroom does not have light and there were only 2 showers. The blond russian girl was amazing. Very kind and helpful.

The staff was relatively unhelpful. When I arrived, they vaguely gestured to a room and that was all of the introduction that I received. When I asked them about a bus back to the airport, they told me to look on the internet. The bathrooms are pretty ridiculous, even for a hostel (constant flooding, the shower heads fall off, etc.). Also, many of the people staying in the hostel were tenants, so it felt more like being a new roommate than staying with other travelers .

The girls bathroom wasn't clean enough, and it never had soap; they allow people to talk, listen to music until around midnight (which is bad when you are trying to sleep. But other than that, I really liked my stay. It was near every touristic place, and Fernando, a guy from the reception, was the most helpful person ever. He tried to help me and my sister on every possible way. While the other girls didn't. In a nutshell, even though I had many things to complain, I'd still stay there again.


A little des-organized, we arrive late and one guy from staff assign us three beds very randomly. They do not write assigned beds or something. Second night while sleeping someone arrive telling that I was in his bed. In fact he was assigned to the same bed. On the other hand, very good location and cheap place.


The staff are really nice and helped me everything I needed. Thanks.


Hostel was cheap and you get what you pay for. Only had 1 night booked. Wouldn't recommend a long stay. Donna was dirty and no top sheet provided. Good location


Rarely i leave bad reviews about the staff, but the German girl working there had a very arrogant way of talking, the Danish girl was also not really friendly and quite dirty, don't look her feet, the owner and the guys were nice though. The atmosphere was bad, too many people living there, not a place to meet travellers but only people with a small budget able even to steal other people food from the fridge even if marked and closed in bags. The kitchen is always broken, the fridge terrible.


Where do i start, the staff were netiher helpful nor friendly. Only 1/2 the lockers in the room closed, the beds shook loads & didnt have ladders so was very uncomfortable getting up to top bunk, & the room wasnt very clean. also only had a small fan (useless). Kitchen was small & poorly stocked, there were quite a few toilets & showers but pretty average. Wifi didn´t work, satff said it would be fixed in an hour but it never was fixed, spoke to others & it hadnt worked all week. cheap but poor


Staff were lovely and helpful but no wifi or onsite laundry facility though it advertised it. Stayed there 4 days and had to go to Starbucks for wifi. No lockers either and no handwash in the ladies toilets. Met nice people here though and breakfast is nice. Needs renovation
