Nice hostel, Great breakfast. Fun bonfire. Downside was no power sockets in my dorm.


pretty nice place


Is a good hostel if you want to party and drink. Breakfast is very poor, a couple of slices of bread with tiny portions of butter already on the plate. The rooms do not have plug sockets so you must charge anything outside in the communal areas, which is a worry as people come in and out all day. Biggest problem are all the dogs, (counted 5) one is an aggressive Doberman that tried to bite a girl when I stayed there. Would only recommend if you like drinking with Aussies.


I enjoyed my experience. The only thing is how cold it is at night. Soooo cold. Extra blankets are needed!

Part of the staff was really friendly and helpful, but other staff members were really unfriendly. Also only part of them speaks English in the reception and if you are not good enough in Spanish you may face with some language barriers. Wifi sucks and the computer was out of order when I was there.

Awesome location & clean place to stay. Only downside is that there was wi-fi when we were there due to a recent tornado which is beyond their control but aside from that; it was in a great location! Some staff were a bit strict about noise & whatever so not a wild party hostel but still met cool people & enjoyed myself nonetheless :)
