Localização excelente. Staff muito atencioso, principalmente o Baltazar. Sabe o nome de todos e sempre dá ótimas dicas de como aproveitar o dia. Porem o Hostel deixa a desejar em alguns detalhes: no meu quarto só havia uma tomada que funcionava, alguns armários do quarto estavam quebrados (deixei meus pertencem em um armário que não era possível trancar), nenhuma porta dos banheiros havia trincos (todos quebrados)...

I have seen many hostel, but this exceeded my limit. The receptionist spoke with very low voice, so it was very hard to hear what he was saying. The room looked like a prison cell: the 6 bed dorm was extremely small and the air conditioner was on only 10 pm to 6 am, at other times the room was hot like hell. There is no window glass, so insects came inside. I didn't expect Hilton, but I had to take a hotel nearby. Take this hostel only if you don't have afford to better place to overnight.

Thanks for your feedback and we are sorry to hear that the hostel did not meet your expectations. We have varios rooms that differ in size and in price so you always have a choice. The air conditioning is on from 10PM to 10 AM and is off only when the absolute majority of our guests are not in the rooms. As for the insects and the heat there is very little we can do as we are in a tropical country with high temperatures, so it is always good to know where are you going and get a repelent =)


atmosphere decontracté, ptit dej copieux malgé les anciens commentaires, personnel discret et pas rapide mais competent, linge laver et rendu propre
