I feel like my experience would have been completely different if I had gotten to the Ring Hostel a few weeks earlier. The peek of tourist season was over and so was the hostel staff's care and attention to their guests. Lorenzo promised rides to the hot springs, to his family's restaurant in the next town, and advertised nightly pasta dinners, none of which actually happened. The breakfast also got progressively less good as the week went on, as if they were avoiding another grocery shop
This is a friendly family run hostel. For that reason things are very casual. The building is the best part. It is a partly modernised antique house with the scent of jasmine from the nearby vegetation running throgh the staircase. There is plenty of terrace space to relax, sit or hang the washing out to dry. Washing machines are available and other extras at a very reasonable price. What could be better? Directions, lockers in the rooms, the number of places in each room & heat or air con
It was so dirty! They didn't have clean linen when I got there and there was no one at reception at night (or in the morning. They left a hand written note with a contact number. But stil...) the beds in the dorm are so close together that you touch the other guests when you move in the bed..... The website sends an inagen that resembles in no way the reality of the hostel!
The location is good , the owner was friendly enough. It has potential but there was to many paople using just 2 bathrooms and the whole place needs to be thoroughly cleaned. Also I came here based on the reviews which were perfect so when it didn't meet my expectations I thought the hostel was worse than what it was.
