I'm returning for the second time. The location is unbeatable and the staff are helpful. In room internet will be great because the seating space could be sometimes limited in the common area. The steps going up to the second floor could be difficult if you don't like to climb stairs. Overall I like it and I would stay again.

The hostel has everything you would expect. A big problem for me was there is only one computer to use and the wifi only in the common area. When I want to use my own computer all the seats near power outlets are almost always taken. It is very frustrating not to be able to charge your devices while your away from the room because the room key must be in the room for the outlets to work. The light system and power outlet system on a separate circuit helps. In room wifi will solve both issues.

Very good hostel with large space for hangout. WiFi in the rooms are slow so you will need to go down for better connection. While the location is great and walkable from the metro I would not recommend walking if you have more than a mid size backback. Taxi is cheap and quick from the metro. Many restaurants near by and the staff are generaly happy to recommend you things to do.

This is not a hostel so it is difficult to rate it as a hostel. The owners are very nice people who will take care of you like a parent. It's easy to find. Definitely not a place for party or even a group hangout. It is on the 15 floor of a massive apt complex so it could be a great home away from home. Restaurants are almost nonexistant around here. Any decent food is a metro ride away but you can get noodle cups.. I hate to call this place an average because the owners are awesome.

This hostel is great. Almost to a standard of a small hotel. Location is as good as it gets. All good restaurants around a block and if you like cheap but good street food then it's right outside. The hostel has a full menu of selection as well. Really decent common space for hangout with pool-table and almost a full bar. My only issue here is WiFi access. It is only available in the common areas and the connection is slow and sometimes it doesn't work. They have computers wired but same issue.

Difficult to find but once you are there it's a cool place. A a bit cramped common hangout space and the house is probably hosting more guests than it could manage. The room was great. I think the key deposit is too much. Good shower, kitchen and friendly staff when you find the right ones with information. it's only a few metro stops from the central station so it's a good location with quick access to everything with less hustle and bustle of a big city. Taipei has one of the best metro system

If you don't like steps this is not your place. The reception on the first floor and the rooms are up to the fifth floor with no elevator. Very difficult to find the hostel. I passed by the door three times and didn't know it since there is no sign. The person at the hostel gave me some explanation why a sign isn't there but the truth is long legal explanation.Hostels are "not in the law" is what I was told in another hostel. The hostels are safe for us regardless. I hope they make it legal.

I will stay here again! This is a great hostel with a rooftop hangout place in a shopping area of the city. Very easy access to metro and buses. Rooms and bedding are clean with all beds with their own small lights and plenty of power outlets for each. Great AC almost no noise! You can bring your own drinks/food from outside for your consumption at the cozy rooftop.

This place is great for a quite stay close to the beach. A walk to the beach is about 10 or 15 min. The only problem is it is a bit far from everything else like buying food or any sort of shopping but the cleanliness and quietness compensates for it if what you need is a private getaway.

Nothing exciting here. The very small shower and toilet room downstairs needs some work. Need more bathrooms. Bar is cool but overall the place very basic compared to places I've been.

There is a nice bar here but a few bath rooms with "10 min" use limit posted in them. Well connected staff will get you connected with some clubs with good discounts on entries. Florianopolis could be expensive so the connection helps. Organized trips with the hostel van are also great value.

The sign says 10 minute max shower, not use of the bathroom. We make an effort to make wise use of natural resources and we ask our guests to try to do the same.

The room I stayed in has a its light switch outside the room! So when I want to sleep I have to go out to turn light off...humm Showers could be better. The space outside of my room also is sometime used for salsa dance lesson so music could be heard in the room. The location is great and the staff are good too.

This hostel definitely made it to my favorite list. I stayed here twice! Good size rooms with AC. Great staff members and plenty of common area to hangout, almost hotel like clean reception. Breakfast is nothing to brag about. If towel is included in the service as many hostels do it would be great. Laundry service will also be a good addition to this hostel.

This hostel has the best staff. All employees and the manager love what they do and will definitely make your stay in Bogota memorable. For everyday they have nightlife recommendations and they were all spot on! The one problem I have is that changing for internet. The WiFi only works ok if you are outside in the patio which is not great when it rains and cold hours. Internet should be included just as other utilities (water and electricity). Breakfast could improve.

TPL is a great place to stay for a short stay as the place is a bit short on facilities (few bathrooms). Charging for internet use is definitely not cool while people with their own devices can use it for free and it is expensive by other internet cafe standards. Noise could be a problem here because of the small space outside of the kitchen is where everybody hangs out which the rooms are also very close to that area. Really great staff!

Cool place if you like party as it is close to the party center and sometimes fellow hostelers also gather at the bar socializing so a good party atmosphere. Bed was comfortable and clean but common areas could use some better furnitures. Showers are ok but water pressure is low so it could sometimes take a while. Breakfast is below average. No lockers in the rooms and for valuables there are very small boxes by the reception but they are not so secure (only top 6 drawers may be securely locked.

This hostel is as clean as it gets. It is like a hotel and I highly recommends it to people who would like a quiet and comfortable night sleep. Good breakfast and great owners. It is not a party hostel but if you want to go out the party happens at Plaza Foch which is not so far so you can still come back from a night out anytime and sleep really well. Nice shower too. Book ahead of time ... I had to leave because they were fully booked. Other hostels owners should spend a night here and learn!

This hostel has the best common area I've seen. Really nice double kitchen, expansive luxury living room and dinning. Bed room was stuffy and really uncomfortable bed. Shower not so good, average breakfast, noisy at night. I didn't expect the noise as the rule says 11pm no noise and no kitchen use late night. Opening the main door took too long several times as the staff do multiple duties they are away from the front desk. The staff were really nice people but they can use some help.

The best hostel I have stayed at so far! Clean comfortable beds with each bed it's own soft lighting. I have yet to see a locker as big and secure as they have here. You can hang a coat or store an entire large backpack and an extra under shelf for a laptop and other things inside the same locker. It will help to add more power outlets in the rooms (may be an outlet by the bed lights). The most friendliest and resourceful staff ever!!

This hostel is a great place to stay in the cold part of the country. Very nice warm rooms. I think the cement floors have heaters built in them as they feel perfectly warm on the feet and nicely distributed temperature around the room. Really nice staff to help with daily planning and recommendations. While breakfast was provided you have to make some of your own breakfast like eggs. And no matter what, you have to wash your breakfast dishes and things. This is not so convenient in the morning.

It is a great hostel with plenty of backyard space with swimming pool. I would definitely stay here in warm season. There is a fire place in a nice tv room to watch movie etc... and they keep up with the fire to keep the place warm in the winter but the heat hardly gets to the bedrooms. There are plenty of blankets but it could still be cold. Breakfast if very basic. If you're an egg and ham kind then you won't have it here. But I still highly recommend staying here. Very helpful staff.

This hostel is a great place for a short stay. There is a nice bar and common area to hangout which is also used for other public functions so it's not always for hostel guests only. I like that because it's a great way to hangout with the locals (some people didn't like that...). Sometimes the parties extend too late and could be noisy if your room is on the first floor. The kitchen is the smallest I've seen. Great neighborhood.

This is place is really awesome. There is no category in this review regarding comfort so I picked on cleanliness to write about the very thin mattress bed. It is really a clean hostel but the bed needs a little better mattress. One of the many reason we sleep in hostels is we like to sleep well and not care too much about the other amenities. Lucas fix it :)
