I didn't feel safe in this area
Adored this hostel! Massive thumbs up
The views are just outstanding and the dorm room was nice - very glad that I stayed here. Only thing I would say is that if you are allergic to dogs/cats this is not for you.
The internet was inconsistant and often it was impossible to connect at all - annoying when trying to arrange onward travel. There is only one communal computer and it is slow and freezes. One of the guys on reception kept leaving the front door wide open one night - this made me uncomfortable as the area is not that safe at night and anyone could wander in freely off the street - the dorms are not locked so it would have been easy for stuff to have got nicked.
Excellent hostel for the price! Staff are awesome - so helpful and friendly. Will stay here again.
Really nice place to stay - especially for a couple! The only problem is the internet does not work and you have to connect to an open network. Likewise the hostel's own PC does not have internet access. This was quite annoying for us when trying to book onward travel and to skype.
Dez and Carlos are both fantastic ! excellent FREE caiparinhas and a great tour of Lapa. Hostel itself is super clean and the staff in general are fun and helpful.
the hostel boasts facilities such as a swimming pool and towel hire but upon getting there the pool is dirty and not suitable for use and they had no towels! This was a major issue as my firend and I had left our towels in Buenos Aires so as to travel light and we ended up having to drip dry after our showers. Also the rooms are really dark and the bed clothes felt quite damp. The location saves this hostel from a worse review.
I really liked this hostel - the room was nice and the shower was good! Breakfast was really great! Its a bit annoying that every time you want to go back inside, you have to wait for someone on the reception to notice you though - the bell seems hit and miss
BEST shower I have had in south america - such a comfy, cosy hostel - would defo use again and happy to recommend!
Do not go to this hostel without earplugs
