Staff was really nice and helpful. The place is cleaned every day by a hard working man. Location is really nice close to the metro station. Atmosphere was good and it was not too expensive. What else are you looking for?


I had a great time at Cafofo Hostel. The staff were really friendly; helping me whenever I needed it and always greeted the guests with genuine smiles. The supermarket next door is great and It's pretty easy to get around the city from this hostel. I would definitely stay here again! P.s. If you are a fan of Nintendo, just go and play any of the classics they have got on offer - you won't be disappointed! ;)


This is a nice hostel. Very helpful and pleasant staff and great atmosphere.
