Horrible hostel! A surprising number of people are sick in this place and the general consensus seems to be that the included "restaurant" isn't all that good... or clean. During my particular stay, the wake-up service and printing also didn't work - which accounted for me missing a flight - well, maybe that happens sometimes. Except they again didnt wake me up the next day - that's properly poor service. Upon complaining heavily I was offered a compensation of less than 1 USD. Do not stay here!
Outstandingly helpful staff, cool bar and lounge area, amazing hostal in general (totally worth the 2 additional blocks from the centre compared to the closest option).
Technically, the perfect hostel... top location, spatious well kept old villa (wooden floors even). However it is mostly frequented by Brazilians who temporarily work in Sap Paulo and only one of the three (very helpful) receptionists speaks english - so no typical hostal atmosphere here.
Overrated. While its a nice and clean hostel, it lacks atmosphere - especially considering that there are beach hostels available on this island.
Top hostal, top location, top staff! Tiny showers are the only possible drawback.
