For my second trip to Manaus, I choose whis hostel, as the first time. It is a good place with a really good breakfest (be carfull, go outside the rush hour). The only bad experience I had this time is the cleanliness. Our private room was not cleaned for our check in at 2AM. A lot of rubich on the floor and in the bin, meaning no roomservice between customer.

Some bad points should be improved. Cleanliness, very bad, vacuum cleaner is done every day but not under the bed (horrible). The grid of vent in bathroom is completely obstructed with dust.Toilet paper is not refill every day, I asked reception one night in emergency, no refill before next morning. Bunk-beds are really noisy, do not move, you will wake all the room. Laundry, not very clean, the grid of the vent is also obstructed and the drying machines aren't maintain (need more time) Rest OK

Hi There, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I spoke to the housekeeping team about the standards in the rooms, and making sure everything is kept re filled and cleaned everyday. This should be the way it is done everyday. I do hope that you enjoyed your time in Wellington. Best wishes, Cat Ritchie, General Manager

After 12 years of backpacking and more than 100 hostels over 50 countries, I can definitely say it is one of the top 3 of my experience. Staff is so nice and helpfull. Clean and with good facilities Quite but you can go to affiliate bar to make party. Yes it is expensive but like everywhere in Tokyo Congratulation and keep going. See you next time

It should be a good choise, But I was unlucky and the paint from the wall on my narrow room was on my suitcase and clothes. (bad point for clenliness). I had problem with stuck plumbing and without saying anything it was repare in the day. (good point) Not a good place to meet other backpackers Good facilities and bathroom

Great brand new hostel. Easy walk to center. Very safe. Conftable beds. Lots of DVD. Very flexible for early check in. Hot water. Some improvement are possible in bathroom : no toilet paper, no soap and no hooks

View Property Reply

Thank you for your comment. Although is important people know that since 1 week and a half there is toilet paper in all our baths for free. Besides is important to remaind that You pay only US$6.00 and you got free access to: kitchen, Movie Room with a big TV screen, pool room with tv, free internet and computers, an open area with hamocks and patio sets and also mate and te 24/7. Dont you think that paying us$ 6.00 is really cheap for what you obtained?. If you were looking for a hostel with luxurious facilities you had to go to AREQUIPAY BACKPACKER UPTOWN that is more expensive but is almost everything included in the price.

Beautiful calm housel. Great breakfast. Free towel change every days Helpful English – French staff. Taxi needed at night. Some improvements possible: - had hooks in the front of the showers because there are nothing to hang your towel and clothes. - replace broken (or missing) light bulbs in the toilets, because it is hard at night
