Hostel is great. Great location (neighborhood is cozy, the street is really quiet and you have to walk about 10-15 minutes to get to the main square). Staff is really nice and friendly!! Hostel is good in general, nice ambience, good rooms with heating and good showers.
O hostel é ótimo! Localização excelente, bem no meio do pelourinho; funcionários ótimos também, sempre ajudando quando necessário, boa segurança, e preços muito bons. Os chuveiros não são os melhores, mas fora isso o hostel é excelente!
Positive: Good location, you can easily reach the beach and main places in South Beach, including supermarkets and cheap restaurants; security (doors are open using a password system); there is a very good wi-fi; good toilets/showers as well; helpful staff Negative: it can be a little noisy, because rooms windows are to the courtyard... but just if you sleep early. My bunk bed wasn't so confortable... but in general, hostel is good!
Hostel was great; good rooms, helpful staff; house is really close to subway stations, and easily reachable from La Guardia airport with just 1 bus (it stops just 2 blocks away from the house). Prices are great, considering you are in New York City, and they don't charge taxes, what is even better. Neighborhood is safe.
PROS: very easy to find coming from Brugges ST PIETERS station, in the north (just walk straight); good breakfast. CONS: terrible way to go to the showers (i knew that before, but it're really bad) - you need to cross all the bar, where everybody's having breakfast, the kitchen, a backyard (it might be cold or rainning), and finally go upstairs... and the showers were terrible as well... just 1 of the 6 or 7 was working well... some members of staff very friendly, but some of them lazy...
PROS: good wi-fi, excellent location (very close to the Central Station, coffee shops, red light district and all the city centre), breakfast is nice (but paid - not expensive), good beds. CONS: dirty toilets, no keys to enter in the rooms, no free breakfast and kitchen provided.
I enjoyed my stay a lot, not having any compaints... It's a perfect location, good rooms and shower, nice breakfast and pleasant TV room... I've just missed a locker inside the rooms, even under the bed, just to store things with more security, but at all everything worth it.
