It was nothing special. It was comfy and the rooms not to crowded. It's not a bad place. But not a special one. No facilities and a staff policy that's ask us anything! We just don't know the answer.... I had to look it up to remember it for the reveiw

ok place for the money


54%

No power sockets near the bed. Bathroom never had any toilet paper. You had to walk through the reception to get to get to the bathroom. On the beds there were no mattress protectors and instead of two sheets there was only one double folded over! Very poor. Quite a noisy room. Buzzing for the door all night. Basically not a good choice. The only redeeming feature was the shower pressure.. But the shower head was broken.

Very hard to locate, no mention that it is in a security block with a looked door and no mention of having to buzz a number On The gate. Walked passed it twice as it only had a little sign above the door that could only been seen from across the road. Bathroom was dirty and had no lock, anyone with a key could come straight in the door and would be walk in on you in the shower or toilet. Only plus was it was 10 min walk from main train station.

Quite bizarre place, just to crash one night near the station. Wifi doesn't work at all in the upper floor were most rooms are. The kitchen is just a microwave that is ment to the staff. In the main floor where I heard crazy fights and noises from people staying there and girls crying. One toilet for the whole floor, quite. dirty. People checking in at 2 or 3 am into the room with the guy from recepcion without even knocking the door (we were all girls). Noises from the outside. Take credit card

The facilities were in a bad condition. For a towel you have to pay extra. Depressive atmosphere - all in all not worth for the money.

Hostel is clean and the rooms are large, but the hostel is not located very centrally at all


54%

The hostel only has one single toilet for all the rooms. So, basically around 25 guests have to share same toilet and same shower, which are in the same bathroom, causing endless queues. In the 6-bed room there were actually 7 beds (and, clearly, 7 guests) and only 4 lockets (to be bought by giving a deposit, which is not included in the price to overnight).

I didn't like staying in this hostel at all. Things that were OK were just Wi-Fi (that actually didn't reach the room) and location near metro station Loreto and Corso Buenos Aires. That's all! First of all I should mention the awful smell, that was in the room. In the locker box it was even stronger. Most facilities, that I've chosen this hostel for, were not included , so I had to pay for all of them. Smbd always used my soap and other thing. As for people, I was afraid to sleep in my room.

Bad location, nothing interesting in the near area. There should be air conditiong, it wasn't there so it was very hot in the room. Just a fan. Internet was not available or very slow. There was only one bathroom (and toilet in it) for a lot of rooms. Breakfast should be included, but the staff said it was not. The drinks from the refrigerator were very expensive. So I shouldn't go here another time.

Friendly check-in, we had no problems, however the room wasn't right and we were changed into the correct one straight away. The room was big enough, although a mirror would have been useful and more air conditioning than a fan as it was very hot! We had a private bathroom, but with no ventilation it got incredibly hot very quickly which meant having to come out and go back in once it had cooled to use the mirror. Go out for breakfast. No secure luggage storage - it was left in the corridor!

When we got there, they said there is a problem with your room's bathroom (I don't think that was the reason) and you need to move to another hotel (Kennedy Hotel). Kennedy hotel was actually one floor of a building with really bad situation...smelling, no air conditioning, no free internet.... The only good thing was the location which was near the metro and main streets.
