I stayed for a few nights, the first night I moved because the bed was right next to the stairs/door with entry code, so really noisey. The staff were great about this. The second room had no power points for charging. Minor points, and it is a hostel after all so unlikely to be perfect.
The oven in the shared kitchen didn't work and the microwave was the only option to cook. Having water in the sink and shower was a problem as well. Other than that, the room was great.

I had a wonderful stay at Onkelinn, breakfast was enough for me, not excessive, but fair enough for a normal person. Beds comfortable, ok internet, I was alone and I found it great to relax and rest. Not a party hostel, which I liked because people were easy going and not partying like in a kindergarten, if you want Quality perfect, but if you want cheap hostel, go somewhere else.

Mixed views on this. Staff are very helpful although English is limited (our fault for not having better Spanish!). Cleanliness is ok but would have hoped for price that soap would be a given. Can't for the life of me see why they advertise indoor and outdoor swimming pool when they clearly don't have one. Jacuzzi didn't work when I was here in 2009 and still doesn't 4 years later...!
We booked a double bed private room. When we arrived, they put us into a little room that could only be reached by a small stair in the dorm. The door was sliding but it blocked directly. There was no space at all for our luggage. We had to pay 29.60 USD for one night for that room! It was also not clean at all. When we complained, they put us into a double room with private bathroom. We had to pay more for that room. But... the shower didn't work at all. Their solution was to cut off the water
The breakfast was dissapointing. Most HI hostels can be depended on to have a tasty and interesting breakfast but it fell like Onkel.inn just wanted to make it as inexpensive for themselves as possible. The computer at the hostel didn't work, which made things difficult for us. The hostel was also overpriced- but we payed in order to have some peace and quite which seemed hard to find at other hostels.
