This was an excellent hostel if you're looking for a good time, you'll meet a lot of fellow travelers. It's near restaurants, bars and clubs. The only issue that we had was there was an older employee who had difficulties communicating with a lot of travelers, was rude and inflexible, and often absent from the front desk and the guests had to often buzz other guests in to the hostel. We were also misinformed about tours and bus schedules, a bit frustrating. Other than that we had a good time.
Location wise very good, very close to plaza Feche. Beds suck big time; especially the upper bunk beds make a lot of noise and move a lot because they are not fully attached to the lower bunk beds. At the time cool people were at the place which compensated a lot.
Vibes is an awesome place to stay- I've been there 3 times and never been disappointed. The staff are really friendly and speak English (plus other languages) fluently. There is a bar - where they organise events, like ladies night (free drinks for girls for 2 hours!) and poker nights. When you're hungover there are 2 tv rooms with massive screens and lots of films to watch too. Showers are powerful and hot. Lockers in the room and gate is always locked (you buzz in) so security is excellent.
