It's very well run, very clean, and very nice for a hostel, bordering on hotel nice. Dorm is on a busy a street corner where buses and cars run from late night to early morning and walk to bathroom is through common area and dining room.
Very nice, well run hostel that helps travelers meet each other. I have stayed here three times already and I wouldn't hesitate to go back if the opportunity arose. Ricardo is a great owner and I enjoy the layout and setup of the hostel. Great amenities.
Incredibly warm staff with a quality resort. Many things to do for free or cheap here.
Very nice hostel for San Francisco. Good breakfast, good lounges.
I stayed 8 days for the Feria. After 10 months in S America, the staff here will stick in my mind as near the best. They have a wealth of information and the environment is so welcoming. I will be back in Columbia and when I return to Manizales, I will stay here. The have a varied breakfast, three hammocks and a nice living area. They are only five minutes walking to the New Town and in a quiet area. The staff's English is good enough to get you the info you need. Fantastic hostel!!
Very nice comfortable and clean hostel.
A pretty good hostel with a pool!
The staff was excellent and helpful... when they were there, which was not all of the time. Overall a good hostel, with a good location, good movie selection, big bathrooms, pool table, etc.
Fantastic hostel! I will only stay here whenever I return to Ushuaia for Antarctica! Great staff, great facilities. The WiFi can be spotty, but that is it
very nice hostel in a good location
Very nice hostel. I have stayed here three times now and their lounge is one of the best I have seen. Cheap and great location too.
Very nice, clean hostel.
Okay. In some guys house and he doesn't really orient you to to island at all
Great hostel! A little off the tourist path, so it doesn't attract many travelers, but the hostel itself is beautiful! Great kitchen and common areas. The beds are a little thin on plywood. Very clean, very professional and very friendly.
Beautiful hostel overlooking Lapa and the center with two large balconies. The beds are very comfortable as is the general feel of this place. The staff isn't as outgoing as other hostels, but when you ask them for something they will help you figure it out. Best place to stay in the area if you're looking for something in this area. The hike up the hill is the only drawback. Not a party hostel but it is conducive to meeting others for a night out.
Absolutely fantastic hostel! The breakfast is great, the staff is helpful and friendly, the hammocks and atmosphere is fantastic for meeting people, and it is very clean. My only (very minor) complaint is the knives need to be sharpened and the pots are missing handles. That is the only thing that could make this place better - that shows how good it is.
Great long breakfast and free caipirinhas. It's clean and well located. This hostel feels more like a business than any other hostel I've stayed at. They send you an unwelcoming email of "you had better show up" and one of my friends was questioned by the owner rudely after their group sat down at the restaurant owned by the same guy. Not the most friendly atmosphere but overall very good amnenities and a great place to meet fellow trackers.
After 5 months in South America, I haven't found an atmosphere like I have in Bananas and a lot of that has to do with the staff and community here. I was going to stay a week and it will end up being 3. STAY AT BANANAS
One of the best hostels I've stayed at in my 4.5 month in Souh America. They have a great, varied breakfast everyday. The staff is incredible and have so much information on your options for tours. I will definitely recommend this to other travelers considering Chapada.
This place lives up to it´s billing. I have been in South America for 4.5 months and this is far and away the best. As everyone said, this is the best breakfast you can find - it is the best breakfast I have ever had and I could eat it for the rest of my life - big variety, healthy and very good. The staff is incredible. They seem to bend over backwards to help you and then act like it is no big deal. Incredible location, cleanliness, etc. etc. I will be back, I just need to figure it out,
The kitchen was small, but that was my only real complaint about it. They speak English and make you feel at home.
This hostel had everything I would want in a hostel. Hot showers, big lockers, a kitchen, friendly staff, and close enough to town for a short walk.
