Although the weather was freezing cold and rainy (which the hostel cannot help) the lack of any sort of heating in the place made it impossible to stay in. I repeatedly told the staff we were cold but they insisted on leaving doors and windows open making it very very uncomfortable. . Rooms were ok, very clean, but nothing much to this hostel. Also having the mens bathroom outside is ridicolous, its a long walk from the bedrooms to the bathroom and in winter itd be freezing to have a shower!
A comfortable hostel. Was a bit unlucky with rude inconsiderate roommates, so didn't get much sleep - but that's just my stay, not the hostel. Good facilities, wifi, etc, fairly comfortable beds, a friendly atmosphere, and a good location make this a decent place to stay. Staff are very friendly, though if you don't speak Portuguese or Spanish, it could be difficult for you. Sure you'd get by, though - they're friendly and helpful regardless, and I witnessed non-native speakers doing alright!
Atmosphere was extremely awkward - just a bunch of older people who couldn't afford hotels in the city, so they went there to save money. Beds were really comfortable. I was there during low season, so can't tell how the peak season is like.
