It is such a lovely place i really can recommend it to everybody! The receptionest is really really frindly!


You can tell how good a hostel is by the amount of people in the common area at night, there weren't any, they didn't have anything to sit on except stools and benches oh yes one rocking chair was good.The rooms were very hot the pillows the worst I've seen & the bedding has seen better days. Also our toilet seat was broken.For the money they charge you expect a little of it to go back into the maintenance of the rooms. The streets were horrible for pull luggage.

The overall cleaning was really bad (kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms were all really dirty). Damp bathroom and extremely hot bedroom (no AC or working fan in a 9 bed shared room) made the stay really bad. Apart from the friendly staff and good breakfast, there is nothing I would recommend about this hostel.


This hostel was so bad that after 5 minutes we went looking for another hostel to stay in. The 10 bed room had an exceptionally useless fan at one end of the room that provided no relief from the extreme temperatures made worse by the fact that it was an attic. The lockers were tiny. If you need to use the 1 bathroom you must traverse down a incredibly steep staircase, which we could imagine would be fun in the dark. The final straw however was a curfew on showers. 11 PM. Never seen that before


Paguei 10% para garantir a reserva,e ao chegar ao albergue, qual não foi minha surpresa em saber que tinham alugado meu quarto para um casal..e sequer quiseram devolver o dinheiro pago da reserva.não recomendo!

We had booked a private room. When we arrived we were given a dorm room but assured that nobody else was staying in there so it was effectively a private room. Later that night another guest arrives in the dorm. The man on reception found this funny and was laughing with another member of staff. He also seemed to think he was doing us a favour by only charging us the dorm rate. Overall, I would not recommended.


Sweet hostel, really liked the dorm without bunkbeds. Staff was nice and helpful even though we had some language-barriers. Plenty of fresh fruit for breakfast was nice. Lots of mosquitoes at night but I'm not sure theres much the hostel can do against that. Located in the center and the beautiful part of town.


this is hostel is very very nice the staff is friendly and very helped with tours and restaurants the rooms cleaned and the breakfast is great.
