The room was great, we booked a private room and it was very good, the staff was very friendly, everything was great, we even got a promotion for my birthday. It's a great hostel, they have tamales for sale, it's close to the historic centre, mercado santo domingo and restaurants. The only thing is that there are some cats and dogs in the hostel, the dogs are ok, but one cat jumped on the table while we were eating and it was disgusting.
Aeromexico lost my friend´s bag and the staff helped us a lot to find it again!!
This hostel has good facilities - a pool table, a mini cinema upstairs, a kitchen for guest use, and the nightly bonfire is a great place to chill and meet people. The staff are friendly and the location is only a 5 minute walk from downtown as well. The basic is breakfast and the free internet is slow but I would gladly recommed this hostel. The dorms are comfortable but are very dark at night so you may need a head torch if you need to get up at this time.
There are about 5 resident dogs and 2 resident cats in this hostel. While they are fine most of the time, 1 of the dogs and 1 of the cats are continually in the kitchen & the cat is always climbing on the table meowing trying to eat your food. It's really annoying. You can't close the kitchen door either unless you barricade it shut from the inside with a chair so they will come in. Apart from this & a lack of power points in the rooms the hostel was pretty good.
Really chilled hostel a short walk from the main square. Decent pool table and cinema room, clean rooms and bathrooms. All the dogs an cats walking around defiantly ads character - would definitely reccomed.
The Hostel is located close to the City Centre. It is a very pleasant place and all the staff are excellent. I really enjoyed my stay. Thank You
One of the best hostels i've ever stayed in.
We really enjoyed this hostel except for the night guy at the front desk, who was really unhelpful. We had food stolen out of the fridge and when we let him know, he told us it was our fault for not properly labeling it (we had) and that he wasn't in the mood to deal with it. He also refused to book a tour for us the next morning, and it was only because we eventually got in contact with the company itself that we made our tour happen.
This is more an animal shelter than a hostel. I got bitten by a dog while waiting at reception and had to fend of cats while eating meals. The dogs also had kennel cough and would cough and bark during the night disturbing sleep. Other than the animals this hostel is good, it is just a hard thing to get past - even though I like dogs and cats. There is a great movie room and big kitchen, pretty good wifi (not in rooms) and the bathrooms were always clean, free breakfast and laundry onsite.
Staff and atmosphere were excellent, we were a large group and found accomodation to be excellent. The one detail I would like to point out is that dorms DO NOT have EN SUITE showers or bathrooms even tho these were listed as such. Besides that, everything was excellent, I forgot my shorts in the hostel and had the chance to go back to pick them up and they had washed and dryed them which was great. Overall an excellent place to stay within a 5 min walk of the best parts of the city center.

Cool place, close to the food and craft markets. Great cinema room, good pool table, and the fire was awesome (when it wasn't wet)
Great hostel, great kitchen, tv room and great social areas to meet people.
Had a really nice stay and was as well quite cheap, thanks to the online deals (3 nights for 195 pesos). The hotel is really nice, room and facilities were clean so not an issue there. There weren't too many people around so I guess the atmosphere is even better when the hostel is full during the high-season. Maybe one thing to improve could be the breakfast which is decent but not extraordinary. Ah yes, another thing, there are 3 cats and 4 dogs so you'd better be an animal lover... :)
