Dated hostel off the center with dated staff.
Cute Hostel in the center of Gent. No large lockers for luggage. Unisex shower stalls. Great breakfast.
It is the only hostel in Brasilia and if you stay there you're sure to lodge with a lot of young architects. It is also new, which is always a plus. The sleeping rooms are a bit noisy though, since the windows open to the street and court. Also it's not in the center, but Brasilia is anything of a city for walking so you end up taking the bus/taxi everywhere anyhow. Getting there is a bit difficult, but again that's Brasilias bad infrastructure. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly.
The following is no dramatization: The hole hostel smelled like urine the whole time I was there, there was an older staff member who was exposing himself nude constantly, the rooms were tiny and cramped with three story beds with no space between and the whole hostel seems sketchy. The entrance is through a garage door between two residential blocks. The doors are constantly unlocked and besides the fear of getting your things stolen, you're in fear constantly of getting molested by the staff.
The location is perfect, you're in the best and safe neighborhood. The hostel is nothing special, but works rather well. Nothing to complain about during my stay.
This is one of the worst hostels I have stayed in and I have backpacked many times including now where I backpack for over three months now across southern Europe. The only thing good about it is it's location, that's it. One of just two bathrooms was broken. The other one had a 1,8 m (5'10") ceiling height and hasn't been cleaned in months. The beds were uncomfortable and loud, the sheets smelled and the room was cold. Over all the whole place was just dirty and smelly - gross!
