Everything is clean, seems safe and most of the staff is friendly willing to help.It´s located pretty good, the bar neighbourhood isnt too far away. The atmosphere is calm, too quiet for my taste, not for the ones willing to party. Breakfast is basic, but all in all is good. When I booked it stated they accepted credit cards, but they don't.

My friend and I booked a private room to avoid noisy dormitories. We were a little disappointed to discover that the private room was next to the common area where people can make noise until 2 am. The dormitory upstairs would probably have been quieter! Also there is no window in the private room and the bathroom was very moldy. Also we had two cockroaches. Breakfast was very very basic, no cheese, stale bread. However, the atmosphere in this place is really relaxed, and it's really cheap!

I stayed here only one night, but my complaints about this hostel are: they only accepted cash at the time of payment-this was noted NOWHERE in their description. Luckily I had enough with me! The facilities were average-on the floor I was on, there was only 1 toilet and 1 shower, for an entire floor. The shower looked like it hadn t been cleaned in awhile.

Well, Ginga is a well located hostel in BH. Me and my brother enjoyed the stay as the staff is really friendly and always trying to help you. The breakfast is fairly simple and the structure itself is as simple. Nothing you never saw in other hostels. Overall it is a good experience.

Nice and helpful staff, location was good to access city but catching buses or taxis into town became annoying. Excellent fast internet on computer, wifi good speed. Security of hostel was good (intercom and locked gate) however the dorm rooms had no key and no lockers, pretty poor
