Most of the staff (particularly Alonso) were brilliant and eager to assist. This hostel is, perhaps, a couple of blocks out of the way from the shopping district but well-located to the beach and, besides, if you can't walk a few blocks for entertainment, then what the hell are you doing in South America? You could stay at the Flying Dog Hostel, but the traffic and fumes would easily keep you up all night. Honestly, this is probably the best hostel experience I've had.
We stayed in a double room with en suite and overall enjoyed our stay. The bathrooms were a bit small but functional. There is a nice roof terrace with bar open til 11pm with a good (if slightly pricey) selection of craft beers, and the kitchen/dining area is a decent size. Cooking facilities are basic, as is the breakfast but there are lots of good restaurants and bars within a 10 -15 min walk to Parque Kennedy. The hostel also makes an effort to put on themed nights most days.
Fun hostel, in a great location in miraflores. Staff are really nice and helpful and the showers/wifi works really well. The place could do with a fresh coat of paint tho. Wouldnt say its that cheap, but miraflores is pricey are.
