Bathrooms are poor - the water was turned off , we had to ask a few times with the result that the water was now running constantly. the dorm of 12 smelled horribly toxic, so we changed for another room where the ac was leaking and weted my backpack and my sleeping bag (they waited again 15 min. to show up). in the end we got a cheaper price beacuse of those problems, which was ok, but than when we asked for a taxi they "sold" us their driver who charged us double of the regular price!
It was a real disappointment this hostel! The door was so little that we almost didnt't find the hostel, it was in front of the garbage dropoff in the street. Our room had a hole on the ceiling, it had a bad smell and it was really degraded. We did a reservation for a double room with shared WC and we eneded up on a dorm with four beds, the staff told us that the double room didn't even exist. Terrible!! Don't recommend it for anyone!
The dorm was not exactly very clean , it was a windowless room. The bathrooms were better outside the dorm. It's quite a distance away from pelorinho. Anyways it was a good neighbourhood.
With few exception, the staff is excellent. Majority of them are ready to help and very polite. The location is excellent because is near to bars and restaurants, and about 4min walking to "Buracao beach".
