Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Room was large, comfortable, and heated. Overall an excellent experience. My only complaint was that some of the bathrooms were in disrepair. Hooks and shelves are needed in the bathrooms to keep our things off the floor. Some of the showers were not working. And the WiFi in house 3 was unreliable. Still, I'd recommend for the location and good atmosphere.

The bathrooms are not good. The sink leaked and left a puddle on the floor our entire stay, the tap only trickled out. Hot water took 15mins to arrive. The showers had no pressure. Very dark, cold and small rooms. The beds were comfy if you get a good pillow that is a bonus! Would not recommend this hostel!

The hostel is ok, the staff are very nice and friendly but I consistently had food stolen from the fridge which was really annoying. Also if you want to get some sleep then don't get a room in the front part of the hostel, unfortunately it's very loud at night. People come in drunk and screaming right through till 6am, every night. Also there are TV's playing really loudly all night and the walls are paper thin so it's hard to get a good nights sleep. I wouldn't stay again but may suit a partier

Very nice hostel for who wants to party! Walking distance to restaurants and clubs. They do not sell alcohol, but you can buy and drink it there. I had a lot of fun!

This hostel should only be stayed at if you want to stay in a frat house. The staff are super helpful and the breakfasts are great, there are also a ton of outdoor seating areas for people to hang out. The problem is, the people who stay here clearly only want to party, and by party, I mean drink heavily. The facilities look very run down, as if no maintenance has been done in a long time and there was no heat in our part of the hostel. ONLY BOOK IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO PARTY OR DO NOT VALUE SLEEP

Great hostel, stayed in he 6 bed dorm. Large comfortable beds, had our own bathroom in the room. Staff are super friendly and super helpful. Lots of activities, they do BBQs and other gathers at the hostel. People like to come here to hang out even when not staying here, great place to meet people. Location is less than 10 minutes from the subway, 15 minute cab ride from the airport (no traffic) and there are tons of bars/ clubs and restaurants within a 2 block radius.

This hostel is on the higher end of the scale as far as 8 bed dorms go - the cost is worth it. The hostel itself is beautiful and there is almost as much to do in the hostel as there is outside. Unfortunately when I was there the place was pretty well empty but when it is full I think this place would be an absolute blast to stay at.

Overall I had a great stay. I couldn't have thought of a better location, close enough to everything, yet on a quiet street just a few steps away. Staff was always pleasent, easy to talk with and full of information. The beds were comfortable, and it was the best shower I'd had in South America. Special shout to Asher and Lex, for going out of their way to get to know me, and always making sure I was enjoying my stay. Thanks again!

Great location - in the heart of the nightlife & close to metro, centre & San Cristobal. Great wifi & amazing showers. Atmosphere not the friendiest as a solo traveller though.
