Good: Great location next to metro, and walking to LAPA. Very convenient. Warm, friendly, helpful, welcoming owners and staff. Deluxe private room. Wifi. Bad: Dorm room at back and upstairs was small and stuffy. Bathroom was downstairs and tiny, including sink. Conclusion: Recommend thoroughly if you want to be near LAPA. If you can, take the very nice "deluxe private" either alone or shared with friend. Alternatively request lower bunk in one of the front upstairs rooms as opposed to the back.

A wonderful hostel. Thoroughly recommended. Meticulously cleaned and, therefore, spotless, including rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, fridges etc Roomy bathrooms/ showers. Wifi (perhaps boost to cover rear section of hostel). Very good breakfast in comparison with other Hostels. Great facilities on site including restaurant (expensive extensive selection), bar, secure lockers, power sockets next to beds, aircon, etc. All staff were very helpful and friendly. I extended from two nights to seven.

Owner was lovely. Could not have made more attempt to make me feel welcome and comfortable. His girlfriend likewise. Unfortunately in my personal opinion the hostel was poor in two main areas. 1) Cleanliness: Mattresses were dirtiest I have ever seen. All require immediate replacement IMO. Mosquito nets covering the beds require boil washing. Bathroom, fridges, not clean. Breakfast left uncovered. 2) Location: Path leading to hostel, and hostel itself, located in area infested with Mosquitos.
