Good location and clean and homley property. Very nice roof terrace. The female dorm is a little smaller than the male dorm. But I asked at the front desk and since the only guy in the male dorm didn't have any reservations I could move from the fully booked female dorm to the almost empty male dorm. Nice! :) Good kitchen and a BBQ up on the terrace- Breakfast is more or less inexistend, but there is coffe and afew tea bags, and a few slices of toast you can make yourself.

Good hostel, friendly staff, decent location, nice terrace, kitchen, decent dorm bed, free water, coffee, towel, map.
The place is decent to stay. I wouldn't recommend against it, but it is not a place where you meet people. I had my 8 person dorm to myself and didn't see many people staying at the hostel. The door to the dorm couldn't be locked, the lock to the bathroom didn't work, the place was definitely not cleaned every day. There was no hot water in the sink and the sink drain was almost clogged. It wasn't a bad place, the dorm room looked clean enough, but there were some details that could be improved.
Good location. Not right in the center but also just 10 minutes away from it. Very clean. Nice kitchen and a great balcony. The staff is friendly and helpful.
boutique hostel with fancy details but is not really meant for backpackers and only saw 2 backpackers in the hostel the whole time I was there. not a happening or fun hostel but good for a good nights sleep and its location.
It was very quite when i was there, i think because it was off season. I had an 8 bed dorm to myself for one of the nights! It was a really nice walk to the centre of town, bit of traffic noise especially early morning but nothing to fuss over. Staff were friendly enough, were helpful when I asked about things to do/see and where to go eat. Our dorm toilet was not cleaned as regularly though, but just had to ask and it was done. Overall a nice and pleasant stay :).
I really liked this Hostel, the staff ladies were always really nice, the room that I stayed was very clean and even offered a small snack breakfast and coffee all the time. The only thing I did not like was that they don't have mixed dorms so me and my boyfriend had to stay in different rooms. But it is 10 min walk from the center and very cozy.
Overall not a bad spot and pretty comfortable. Plenty of hot water in the shower. Only two functioning lockers for 8 beds in our room, so if you have stuff you need to lock up, probably better to go someplace else, especially considering the door to the dorm does not close (in fact, swings open if you try to shut it without sticking a flip flop or something to jam it) so anyone who wants to can walk in. Bring earplugs because the kitchen, hall, and stairs are right through the open door.
Only stayed for one night due to going to Leon the next day. Bathrooms are clean and showers are good. Good water pressure and hot. Staff is really friendly. There is an on site kitchen you can cook in upstairs. Only two downfalls: the street next to it is loud so a little difficult to sleep, though that is common in a small condensed city like GTO. The other is Make sure to pre arrange the fair with the taxi driver before you get in. I didn't
Excellent hostel, elegantly decorated, amazing kitchen and super friendly staff. Away from the city center but super close by foot. Close to stores, etc.
