We stayed in a private room with ensuite for 2 nights, it was comfortable enough the room was clean and there was also not much noise so we slept well. The shower on the first day was pointing away from the wall so wet all the floor in the bathroom so be careful with that, the breakfast wasn't the best there wasn't much variety (no fruit at all....) the location was perfect and the staff were friendly enough though and fairly helpful albeit we had to ask for all the information we received.
I stayed at the hostel for 1 night, it was ok but nothing to shout about really, plus if you want somewhere with good wifi this Is defo not the best hostel to stay, although they do also have communal computers but only 3.
I stayed here for 10 days, I stayed so long as the location is perfect & it's nice and quiet (well as long as you don't stay on a Monday or Friday night, then in which case a club next door keeps you up all night with thumping music) The staff were not great to begin with, not as welcoming as a lot of other hostels I've stayed in, although they did get better as the days went on. The atmosphere wasn't anything to shout about, I'd only Recommend staying if you want to be alone and not bothered.
I stayed at the millhouse for 4 nights originally and then extended my stay to a full week, this hostel is a P.A.R.T.......Y?? Cos I gotta!!! Hostel, Many fun filled nights/mornings haha at he millhouse! The staff are exceptional, always willing to go the extra mile to sort things out and help with your stay, other travel plans and just generally having a great time whilst your in BA. Location is perfect in the centre of BA close to all man sites and cool late bars! A massive thumbs up!!
I stayed in Books Hostel for 3 days qbefore I left RIo, all I can say is I wish I had of found this hostel sooner as I would have stayed much longer! Book is by far the best hostel I've stayed in so far in my travels around South America, the atmosphere is excellent, the staff are so friendly and helpful, I felt right at home and happy there! The hostel is located in Lap which is a great location for sight seeing and going out, I would highly recommend Books to anyone!
Was a very good vibe to the hostel, staff were helpful and friendly, not greatvwifibreception but your on an island so.... Rooms are cramped 9 bed bunks in a very small room, no one wants the top bunk very near to the ceiling and no communal shower rooms which means waiting for showers a lot. The location however is perfect and the communal rooms are cosy and welcoming, I enjoyed ,my stay there.
