Not really a "hostel" but it's still a great place! Nice well equipped kitchens, beautiful (perfect) views of Viejo San Juan, and nice rooms. The bathrooms are cleaned daily. Staff was very helpful upon checkin but didn't really interact withem much after that.

Modest place. We had a private room on the third floor. One double bed and two air mattresses. Nice staff but very aloof. Mama was nice, but a stickler on using the AC. Location is the best attribute of this hostel.

Great hostel, great staff, great location. I enjoyed everything about this hostel. The security was a bit strict at times, but it makes the place safer. Favourite part of the hostel was the ping pong table; it definitely builds community. And Lucy, best receptionist ever!

This hostel is in a favela! While this may be off-putting at first, don't let it get to you! The location is interesting. I felt safe walking through the favela any time if day or night. The food in the favela is also cheaper than any part of Copacabana. The staff here is the best part, they're all nice and helpful. My room was in the adjacent building and didn't have great ventilation. The bathrooms are odd and the electric showers are horrible. I would recommend this hostel for its novelty!

The facilities here were excellent. Plenty of bathrooms and the showers had very hot water! I was lucky to be in the "big brother" room which is separate from the main part of the hostel and it's a lot quieter. It also has it's own bathroom with showers. The staff was ok, helpful at times but bridal at other times. Their line computer is a dinosaur but it still works. I would stay here again.

This hostel was fantastic! The breakfast was the standard bread with jam and butter. The showers had good pressure and we're hot. There are lockers in the room assigned to each bed. Two computers for guest use. A bar upstairs with foosball and a kitchen area with fridge. Nightly events (BBQs, dances, drink specials). Besides all this the hostel staff was purely amazing! They were my favorite part of my stay. They'll tell you all the sites to check out, they'll even take you out to the bars/clubs

The staff at the hostel was the best part. Leo is a fellow traveler so he gives some inside tips in making your stay easier. David is from Lima and is a little cooky but extremely helpful! I also liked the hostel atmosphere. It´s not really a party hostel or anything but it´s easy to meet people here. The location isn´t great due to the fact that it´s a bit far from anything. The only bad thing was the bed I was in! It was dropping in the middle so it would force me to sleep in fetal position.

When I was checking in the hostel staff was trying to rip me off by deducting the dollar amount from the total Soles amout I had to pay. They knew they were doing it too and it took me a while to convince them of what was going on. The bathroom was horrible! No ventilation so everything was muggy and wet. The bar on the top floor was nice and the food they cook there was great. This hostel is good for a one night stay to go to MP but two nights was too long.

Due to the directions on the Hostel World website this place was easy to find. The door is right there facing the street. The hosts were great people. Cali (Carlos) the guy in charge is super nice and helpful. If he has time he will take the time to point out all the cool places to check out in the city. The Internet connection here is a little better than the hostel I stayed at in Cusco. The only downside was the bathroom, no soap dispenser nor paper towels.

Best part of this hostel was the staff! They are all nice and very helpful. The atmosphere is also great with a good chilling area, good vibes all around. The breakfast is simple: two pieces of bread with one fried egg and jam. Tea is available all the time; coffee available in the mornings. The Internet is very spotty and slow. There are lockers in each room and lockers with electrical outlets downstairs. The only downside was the creaky floorboards in my room.

Lucky D's, San Diego, USA

Lucky D's is at a prime location, near all the bars and restaurant. It can get noisy at night since there is a bar on the first floor. The breakfast here consists of waffles and cereal, not much else. Tea and coffee were available all the time. The bathroom walls have some cool colors. The receptionist was a foreigner and didn't understand 80% of the questions I asked her. That was really annoying. Some of the other staff were nice and helpful though. Overall, I would stay here again.

Overall the hotel was fine, and I'd stay there again if I had to. It's location is fairly well, right near the Vieux Port and within walking distance of the Bonne Mere.
