More like a hotel, than a hostel. If you are a single traveller and looking to make friends I wouldn't recommend staying here. The events that I was told about seemed to be just staff members and I didn't feel welcome. Cleanliness and reception staff are faultless.
pros: excellent location, super close to the beach awesome meals cooked by Kevin - his chocolate & pineapple cake is amazing! Shelley on reception is SUPER helpful 8-bed dorm spacious cons: a lot of long-term guests give it an odd atmosphere staff (other than Shelley) were unhelpful and uninterested could be cleaner
love love this place. Thomas, Shea, William and Issac made this place awesome. great touches like free drink in a bar next door daily, waffles at breakfast (donuts on the weekend) and a TV room to hang out in (with vhs tapes!)
it's fine, but drifter jack's is better
staff could be better
Best hostel! Staff were absolutely fantastic and went out of their way to help out and make sure you have a good time. Highly recommended. Thank you :)
Seem to make up rules as they go along. Felt unwelcome here. Kitchen isn't very well equipped. Rooms are spacious though and there are little benches you can sit on outside the hostel. Far away from town centre.
staff were awful. if you don't want hostel guests don't open a hostel! if you're not one of their favourites they make up rules just for you
Positives: great value, large dorms, big terrace to relax on, well-stocked kitchen, central location and VERY clean Negatives: no lockers (although I didn't have any problems with my belongings) Note the owner is on the eccentric side...
On the whole a good hostel, but too many rules for me to recommend it. For example, you cannot bring in your own alcohol and the cheapest available at the bar is not that cheap. Staff were helpful and friendly and the eggs for breakfast were good. Overpriced for Bolivia.
AWESOME HOSTEL. BEST IN BRAZIL. I booked for 5 nights and stayed for 11. Gaucho, I will be back!!
Did not enjoy my time at this hostel. The manager was unfriendly verging on rude, the volunteers were lovely though. Fairly central location although hard to find and poorly signposted. There are much better options in Jeri for a cheaper price. Would not recommend.
More like a hotel than a hostel. Don´t stay here if you want to hang out with fellow backpackers.
Average hostel. No real atmosphere though and would benefit from more informed staff.
