They lost our reservation even though we had spoken on the phone to double-check. They didn't do anything to help or to take responsability.

The sockets in the room are not that convenient for everybody to use.

The hostel is too noisy, not only because of the cars, the music on the lobby is very high and the staff usually turns it louder. The staff is kind but they don' t always put attention to your requirements. The bathrooms are a disaster. The beds are old and they are not very comfortable.

Staff was not very helpful, they couldn't even recommend a restaurant to eat out or a museum to go.

Rooms very small, overcrowded and little ventilation.12 bed dorm in a very small room. Staff not very helpful, too busy chatting to each other behind the desk. Your almost an inconvenience to them!!

The kitchen is rubbish, There are 4 pans (without handles), no cups or glasses, 1 spoon. If you are looking to cook for yourself this is not the hostel for you. Everything else is fantastic, the staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are great and there is good security.

It is a pretty good place to stay if you want to go a lot to the beach and on partys! Nice staff and a friendly atmosphere made the stay over there very nice and comfortable...I will come back for sure.

Maybe it could have been better if they check people in earlier than 2pm if rooms were available. Booked for a 6bedroom room as there were 5 of us. When we went to the room, we were surprised that there were 10 beds. So had to bring all of our luggage down again. At least the guy named pepe assisted us in getting the 6 bedroom room again. Unlike isabella who told us "if you don't want to bring your luggage back down, then stay on the 10 bedroom room"

First hostel I didn't liked.. Perfect location but the staff was unfriendly, didn't have knowledge about the hostel, inflexible, and you have to pay a lot without giving any more information about the payment.

My stay at the hostel was nice. The hostel is a cool and lively place. The breakfast is also good. But I think that some things need to be improved. In my opinion it is not a very safe place. They dont have individual keys nor lockers in the rooms. Common area lockers are available, but they are very small, even for backpacks. Also there is no control of the entry of guests at the hostel. The bathrooms are not good and they are always wet, despite a constant cleaning.

El hostel esta bien ubicado cerca de la playa de copa, pero es muyyyy ruidoso cerca de la avenida, No es grande el espacio para el desayuno es chico no hay donde sentarse, hace mucho calor y los cuartos las camas de arrba no entras sentado te pegas la cabeza contra el techo y no hay ventilacion... no volveria x estas cuestiones. Despues es super limpio, los banios impecables muy amplios

This hostel is HUGE. If you are looking for a party atmosphere, this is the place to be. If you want a quiet place to Skype or check your email this may not be the place for you.
