O hotel tem pessoas muito jovens e se você procura tranquilidade, talvez não seja o melhor lugar. Hotel muito organizado, com excelente café da manhã (precisa pagar 6 euros), bom staff.
The rooms were quite tight for 8 people, and were quite warm as well. However they had individual plugs and individual lights which is very nice!
Customer service here was extremely disappointing. Firstly they checked us into someone else's private room. Then we had to wait over an hour for them to find another room for us. The room we ended up in just didn't seem very clean and the shower completely stopped every minute or so because there was no water in the pipes! In the end we managed to get a private room for our last night which was a lot nicer, the dorms were below average. Would not go back.
Hostel was clean enough. Staff was super offensive. I am in my 30's and my husband is 40, yet every time staff spoke to us (they were all under 25), they were condescending. Nowhere is it posted (it should be on the site before you reserve) that no products purchased off the grounds are allowed on site, but they try to enforce it. The food is BAD. 'Back doors'/windows in rooms don't lock properly. Great if u r 18 and want to get wasted drunk and be leered@by creeper staff and pretend to be adult

Poor wifi in room / Noisy beds / indoor pool was closed / non appetising breakfast. Asked if it was possible to store some leftover lunch in the kitchen fridge and was told it was 'impossible' and against the law.... Overall expensive for what you got. Staff are really friendly. Just the place lacks proper facilities.
This hostel was so much more than I was expecting. HUGE, has a pool, delicious and cheap food and alcohol. The bartenders are awesome, especially Koomba! If you're looking to meet a ton of people and have some party time, this is definitely your hostel. There's a club downstairs but you can't hear music from your room. Lockers in every room and VERY clean shower and bathrooms. Make sure you close windows at night, Mosquitos attack. Just ask front desk to turn on your AC. Also, plugs at each bed!
Overall, good hostel. I didn't like the hotel feel to it. Wish I realized that in advance. More of an "in n' out" hostel, with high numbers of ppl per night. Answered questions, but rather insincerely and lacking enthusiasm. Mostly american tourists, which I don't prefer.
Indoor pool shut, cleaner stole my flip flops and you can't eat your own food in canteen which is ridiculous as it's a HOSTEL not a hotel. Staff pretty much laughed at me when I told them about my flip flops.
One of the best hostels I have stayed so far. Nothing to complaint.
the indoor pool was closed and the outdoor pool was cold and uncleaned. but it's 5 minutes away from the train station and it looks like a hotel! rooms are spacious lockers bathroom and showers were good.
Great hostel. Lockers are nice and big, beds are separated enough for a good amount of privacy and you even have your own outlet and reading light right by where you sleep. The only complaint I might have (and honestly not really a big deal) is that the switch for your reading light is right beside one that controls the main one in the room. It's very easy to turn the main light on by accident haha, but this is only a minor complaint and shouldn't stop anybody from staying at this great hostel.

Great place to relax and meet people. You can party on the roof top with the amazing views. Even tho it's a bit more expensive than other places it's worth it
The facilities are really good here- comfy bed and strong showers. They provide towels and linen which is great. Breakfast is awesome and wifi is strong. This hostel chain is massive though so be prepared for lots of school groups and camps to be around!
only problem while on the hostel is that during the night in the fifth floor seems that there is a lack of water. Some people ran our of water while taking a shower and they had to go to de bathroom in front of the reception to finish or better shower there
Air conditioning wasn't cold enough, roommates and I couldn't sleep well, mosquitos within the room made it much worse The showers weren't working at all, no water coming out, we complained but the staff couldn't do anything (they were nice, thankfully), most of us ended up showering at the first floor's bathroom by the internet corner. The toilets in the room had no lock so no privacy whatsoever.
Check in isn't until 1:30 I believe and I highly recommend just storing your luggage and waiting until later in the day. A lot of people pass through this hostel and you will waiting for a long time to check in otherwise. I was in an 8 bed dorm and had both nights with the room completely to myself but was hearing the hostel staff were telling drop ins the place was full, which just wasn't the case. Not sure what's up with that, but overall a great hostel and atmosphere for meeting travelers.
PLUS was great! Positives: great facilities and it's a really nice place, very secure, and the pool and sauna and terrace are awesome. Negatives: location isn't perfect, since the train station area isn't always the best late at night. If you are a female group be sure to stay together (I studied in Florence for a semester, and it's known to be careful in that area late at night). Wifi did not work in our room so that was a bummer, but was great in the lobby and other areas. Would recommend!
Location was a bit far from city center (about 10-15 minute walk to the duomo) but far enough to make it affordable. The wifi was spotty and dropped often but still offered in rooms. Many people passing through so easy to meet people if you are trying to and staff was helpful in any way they could be.
Totally easy to get there from the train station. Perfectly located for a walk into the historic centre for exploring and sightseeing. Helpful and friendly staff. Could hear other people in their rooms over night and had a squeaking bed, which might be annoying for the others in the dorm. Other than that the hostel is perfect for a city trip/ weekend.
