Really good hostel with a huge kitchen and basic but clean beds and bathrooms. Very helpful staff and I must say that its really good the doctor thing if needed! Great breakfast as well
Super well stocked kitchen! They even had spices. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff were extremely helpful with everything from booking excursions to making ice packs for my knee when I messed it up.
Some staff were really friendly but some we just ok although they helped us when we needed. Bright and spacious rooms, kitchen isn't that big but if you are there at the right time you can have your dinner done on time :) Location is excellent, near the prison, the "imaginary" bus station and all amenities. The only down side is the bathroom/ showers behind reception, which means miles from your room but we managed this as well.
Great hostel with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Kitchen area is big and very sociable. Not enough power sockets in the dorms but plenty in the lounge area. Eggs for breakfast! ! Great touch. Only downer is that the bathrooms are on the ground floor away from the rooms. 3 out of 4 of the girls showers keep flooding - it was pretty gross. I did mention this to the staff but I don't think it was sorted out. Really comfy beds in heated dorms. Would stay again!
We only stayed there one night. The hostel was good. The common area was nice with big couches to chill out. Otherwise the dorms and bathrooms were basic but yet clean.
I really enjoyed my stay here! Great vibe with the bar downstairs, and the staff were most helpful, especially Gabriel. Only minor issue is when staying in the dorms upstairs, is that the bathrooms/toilet are all the way downstairs thru the bar/reception and up the back...a pain when using the facilities in the middle of the night...but that is a minor quibble.
The place was cozy and pretty descent but it is starting to look like it has had one too many busy summers. The guys bathroom needed a really good scrub and all the toilet seats need replacing. It's close to the city centre which is handy and they have a really good map with information about the area. The lockers in the rooms are a good size and the beds were comfortable. One big downside if you are staying upstairs is that you have to go through the common areas to use the bathroom.
Antarctica Hostel is a GREAT place to stay!! The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly in every facet, the rooms are warm and cosy, and the breakfast is fantastic. Loved staying here!
Overall the hostel was nice and warm however it should be noted that you have to go upstairs and through the kitchen to access to most of the rooms. It should also be noted that the toilets/bathroom facilities are located downstairs, beyond the lounge and reception area (ie so if accommodated upstairs, one has to go through the kitchen, lounge and then reception area in order to get to the toilets/bathroom facilities).
