This hostel is an ok option for a one night stay after or before a tour. It is only a few blocks from the bus station and a short walk into town. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. A handful of lockers are provided in the reception area and the staff are friendly but not particularly helpful. The bathrooms are spacious but the hot water is sporadic. The breakfast is poor though (hard bread!) and the wi fi didn`t work during my stay.
Filthy toilet, my bed wasn't ready although I arrived hours after check-in time started, they're re-doing the patio area so it wasn't a great place to hang out. But it was cheap and I stored my luggage while I was in the jungle, so it was all right.
The hostel was 4-5 blocks from the action of town - say a 5-10 min walk. The room was clean but the shared bathroom was dirty, out of toilet paper and the shower was not warm. The beds were a little uncomfortable. The hammock area was good. Breakfast was bread rolls with jam, coffee and bananas. The Internet was slow.
Beds ultra soft, pillows ultra bumpy. Powerpoint in room didn't work, and only 1 in a 4 person room (however bathroom one did). No WiFi. Had a fan.
I would not recommend this hostel. We booked a twin bed room and upon arrival we were told there were no twin rooms available and therefore had to share a double. We were given the key to the room and then when we got there the room had not been cleaned. The door did not lock from the inside. We moved hostel and stayed somewhere much nicer for the same price.
Cheap hostel close to centre of Rurre. Not great in terms of cleanliness, also not helped by construction in the middle of the hostel (of a pool I think?). Very small room and no mosquito nets. Didn't get a chance to try breakfast- flying out early. Good if you just need a bed and a hot shower or are on a tight budget, but wouldn't recommend a long stay otherwise.
Does what it says on the tin, the hostel is under construction - a pool. Everywhere is covered in dust with not too much going on in the common area. Rooms are basic and could have been cleaner. No Wifi available but there is a lap top at reception which can be used if required.”
Good place to stay. Nice hammock area and beds and showers were average.
Not a bad hostel for a night before or after a tour. Facilites are pretty basic, didnt see any sign of a breakfast or wifi but its extremely cheap and has comfy beds and clean rooms so cant complain too much. About a 5 minute walk from the other hostels and centre of town. Swimming pool is currently being dug out.
I didn't think much of this hostel. Maybe it was because there was building work going on. I wouldn't say the security was very good and I wouldn't say the rooms were clean either. The breakfasts as standard bread and jam. The man on the front desk was nice, and it was good because he spoke some English. The location isn't that nice but it's ok.
I think this used to be a great hostel but there was a lot of damage done by the flood and they are just getting back on their feet. It is also the furthest hostel from town- we got to use another hostels pool for free which was good and a discount on a fantastic restaurant called Nomads. I think it will be great when everything is rebuilt.
