Didn't like 1 bathroom outside for entire hostel, 1 standing fan for 6 beds & was so hot, sheets didn't fit so ended up on the bare mattress in the morning, only 2 outlets in entire hostel, sleeping next to a mosquito coil but still needed to sleep with repellent on, staff didn't speak English but since I only stayed 1 night they refunded my money for the other one. which was nice. Just not my kind of hostel

Has it's charm - had room #9, 4 bed with a balcony! 1 block from the bus & great restaurants. The worst was the wifi - 2 bars max, mostly limited & AC on only at night. Pool was green but were cleaning it the day I left. Staff was fun though.
No one was at the airport to pick me up - reception said a guy was there, the owner said his wife was there - no one was there so went to the Tibet Guest House - excellent with battery back up!!!! I did go here the next day but after no electric for 10 hrs I left. The basic $6 single room: bed felt like a cement slab, no fan, wifi, toilet paper, bathrooms were filthy. Don't do it!!!!!
Kitchen is huge & fully equipped, excellent friendly/knowledgeable staff, 2 mins from the bus, perfect location, great bar, comfy beds, perfect wifi, outlets everywhere, great place to meet people. Was perfect!
No staff on site, have to check in across the street. Only good thing close to bus/train stations.
Big gorgeous hostel with huge lockers, spotless, in house restaurant, comfy beds with curtains, balconies, excellent wifi, perfect location - right next to the square. My only negative input is there are no toilet seats! My 2 night stay became 1 week.
Fun hostel. Have to be young or at least young at heart! My 3 days will be 30 days. Comfy beds, excellent staff, close to everything. Finally a hostel in Morocco you can cook! Huge rooftop terrace. No lockers but hasn't been a problem.
The women staff only play on their phones, watch videos, etc. No helpful details given, disappear during the day leaving the cleaning lady there who does not speak English well. 2 showers/1 toilet for dorms & is downstairs. Reservation screw ups - moves people to their sister hostel, always out of toilet paper, no music, TV or cooking facilities. Just not a fun hostel if you want to meet people. Beds creaky & uncomfortable.

Stayed 1 night & left. 10 bed dorm so cramped & smelled like feet! 2 toilets - 1 always broken. Small kitchen/frig & cooking area. Too many better hostels in Lisbon for the same price.
Something for everyone no matter the age. Huge outside patio & an indoor one as well,so can party but can also have quiet time in the room w/a small terrace. Large comfortable common room w/HDTV. Dorm rooms are comfortable w/large bathroom, lockers, reading lights. Basic breakfast but plentiful. Excellent, friendly, knowledgeable staff, great location, 2 grocery stores nearly, large kitchen w/2 frigs - very homey & sociable - my 2 nights turned into 7 & would go back!!!!
Good hostel for the young. Too commercial feeling - just not for me, but very clean, comfy beds, great bar, large common area & patio. Big lockers under the bed, excellent staff, great wifi even in the rooms.
You better be in shape to stay here. I timed the 20 min. walk uphill to the main square, lots of stairs. Only 1 outlet in the 8 room dorm w/no wifi except the common room which only had 2. Costs 7-8 euro for the taxi from the bus/train. The breakfast is good, staff so friendly, beds comfy, they made a fire every night. I think this hostel is overpriced.
This is more of a home than a hostel. No real common area except for 2 small sofas in reception area & a D/R table. Nice area, clean, good basic breakfast & patio.
My only complaint was not enough outlets, only had 1 in a 10 room dorm, only a strip for the common area. Staff was fun & so helpful. Very cozy & great beds. Would stay there again.
Staff was helpful & sweet. Only 1 toilet (downstairs) for entire hostel. 2 showers also downstairs, but had hot water. A very quiet, laid back hostel, very clean except for the bathroom which had no mats, so water everywhere, hard to change clothes. Beds very comfortable, warm & had heaters in each room! There isn't a restaurant or cafe & can't use the kitchen, if you bring food the staff will cook for you at a price & offer free tea during the day. No TV or music.
After 11:30PM whispering only, no music - only a TV, no outside terrace, the tiny kitchen that seats 4 closes at 11PM & so crowded if more than 5 people are there, with laminate floors everything echos, when we asked for our heat to be turned on - the reception said 'maybe you should stay somewhere else", my money was stolen while in the shower which is ankle deep within minutes. Only good thing it has an elevator.
If you like filth, no wifi (limited for 4 days), mold & mildew, walls that are so thin that echos every word all day/night, old foam mattresses that are the most uncomfortable beds ever - this is the place for you. Eating area only seats 6 people, only 2 shared computers that you can never get on, bathrooms that felt like they have never cleaned them - felt dirtier coming out than going in, water drifts into the hall. 2' dust under the beds. In my bottom 3 of 30 hostels. So overpriced...
1st time I stayed gave 100, this time had to leave since the AC blew warm air, they wouldn't fix it or move me, over 100 degrees outside we were melting in the room. They have 2 elevators fitting 4 people for 300 beds & 1 always having problems & if on the 9th floor... Plus 1 bathroom for 10 people, no where else to go unless you go down to main reception area on the 2nd floor.
My 2nd time here, love this hostel - the breakfast, tons of bathrooms always with hot water, free hour of wine, huge kitchen fully stocked, just a delight & the staff become like family. Perfect location as well.
Excellent hostel, would stay there again. Great rooftop bar/music, clean, comfy beds & quiet dorm rooms. The owner is so great and helpful, can't say enough about this hostel.
Great hostel, dorms are quiet, comforters, comfy beds, staff is amazing, best food & cocktails & inexpensive. The only thing I would request is more hooks in the showers.
Loved the beds with curtains in the dorm! Spotless, feels like staying in a house. They do charge 6 pesos for breakfast of eggs, bread, butter/jam when I got a full dinner in town for the same price. Make sure the price is correct before you book since Hostelworld posted $3 - NO but they honored it for 1 nigh. I would definitely stay there again.
What a great hostel, like a home. Comfortable beds with 2 pillows, comforter! Quiet - a block from the beach, the market - loved it & the owners are excellent. Going back there on my way back to Argentina - definitely stay there!
Like staying in someones home. The beds are the best, 2 pillows & a comforter! Huge storage lockers. The open market is right down the street & a block from the beach. Everything was excellent.
The most spotless hostel I have been in. Laid back, quiet, staff is excellent, location is perfect next to restaurants, grocery store, huge lockers in the room, beds so comfortable, a lot of bathrooms/showers, just everything! for 3 & stayed 6 - definitely stay here. Diane
My 2nd stay there & I if return to San Juan will stay again - you guys are the best!
My top favorite hostel. Huge kitchen = totally equipped, tons of bathrooms/showers so no waiting, dorms are spacious with big lockers, unbelievable breakfast with eggs / pancakes to order, juice, coffee, pastries, everything - so rare in this country. The free wine at night is fun, excellent staff with knowledge of the city - they become like family, also can book tours - just everything is perfect. Would live here if I could - STAY HERE, won't be disappointed.
One of the best hostels ever. So centrally located, so spacious but quiet, tons of bathrooms, dorms are huge with lockers to match. The kitchen is amazing, the staff outstanding. Wish I could give this a 20 - have to visit there & I hated to leave! Thank you guys so much! Diane Rankin
What a great hostel if staying in San Juan - close to everything. The rooftop is excellent for cooking out, drinking, low key hostel so quiet places as well, no noise in the rooms but still can meet people, play ping pong, great kitchen. My 3 day stay extended to 5.
My 3 night stay turned to 6 - my room even had a balcony with french doors. Location is perfect, tree lined streets, safe, great restaurants, stores, etc. The hostel is spotless & the 3 Juan´s are great hosts! Can party on the roof with inside/outside areas so noise does not filter to your dorm room. Huge bathroom & best shower! Great breakfast. Hated to leave... Don´t miss staying there when in Palermo.
Good place if ya wanna get robbed if you turn your back on your 'stuff' for a second. Walls make of tissue paper, Paid for a female dorm & was put in a mixed without even telling me.
There should be screening on the front door (which is really a gate), deduct the deposits we pay Hostelworld, clean the rooms! I even had a wasps nest behind a plaque on the wall in the living room. Plus no lights at night outside to get to the restaurant/bar with all those steps.
Should have a shower curtain in the bathroom. Make sure the person on reception is more knowledgeable about the area.
