Good breakfast


Very clean and safe hostel. Excelkent staff. It's not a party hostel, but a quiet one. Breakfast is huge. Internet works well. The kitchen is poorly equipped. There is a log stare to climb to reach the hostel. Recommended.


Safe, clean and good breakfast. It's a good hostel if you are looking for quiet place. Staff is very kind. Internet wifi works. The kitchen is small but fibe and clean. Take a bus to get there because it's on a hill above Lapa.


Staff were really friendly and helpful. Loved the location really peaceful, short walk to Lapa and the bus stop. Really good breakfast with a wide variety of things to choose from. Bed was really comfy and the curtains round the bed add extra privacy. Decent sized lockers too. Only downside was that the lock on one of the doors of the shared toilet was broken, but easily fixable.


Very close to Lapa, but you must take a bus because it's up on a hill. Pros: breakfast is free and great. Shower works well and toilets are clean. Internet wifi goes fast. Staff is very kind. Cons: you must climb a long stair from the entrance to the hall; the kitchen is poorly equipped; they have a cat.


The hostel is in a safe area and 5 minutes walking from Lapa. It's very clean, the kitchen is ok and dorms are clean and silent at night. The only problem is that you must climb a long staircase to enter into the hostel from the street level. The staff is great and very kind. Internet is fast. The common area is big and you also have free coffee. Breakfast is pretty big and varied.
