Stayed here during Carnaval '15 and had the most amazing time, all thanks to the brilliant staff at this hostel who by the end of your stay will feel like family. There is a terrace currently under construction which when finished will be great with an awesome view (you can see Jesus!). The staff came out with us during Carnaval and would always go out of their way to help you. The staff make up for any tiny drawbacks of this hostel. Loved it! Enjoy the stairs :)


The staff were not very knowledgeable on common tourist questions, but were happy enough to look most things up and find out. Otherwise, we had a very good stay! The steps going up to the hostel are steep!


The best hostel ever! Ray and all the team are amazing, always going out of their way to help you out with anything you need. Great location even with the steps (but its worth it for the view). Lovely BBQs from Ray the best you`ll have. The team are great for taking you out to the best places. We´ll definitely be back. Thank you for everything!
