This hostel is fine - it's in uptown Kingston, about 15 mins walk from Halfway Tree, and there's not a lot within walking distance. Not a lot seems to happen there, although the staff are very nice. The beds are very comfortable, and the bathrooms are clean - just not much going on!
Great location in Santa Monica - staff gave you loads of info about the area, and they run really good tours. The only things that let it down were that there's no bar and unfortunately the showers were only ever lukewarm, which is a bit unpleasant when it's cold outside! Overall though, I'd definitely recommend this hostel.
This hostel is close to the Santa Fe train depot, although that may not be everyone's priority. Everyone's really friendly, and there's a great atmosphere, plus it has great facilities, e.g. Xbox etc.! The only thing I would say is that the dorm I was in (4-person) was tiny, and the beds are quite uncomfortable, plus they have a 'rustling' plastic coating which is a bit loud. Bathrooms are great though, and v clean.
We went to this hostel for New Year's Eve, and it's definitely a party hostel! In terms of facilities, unfortunately most of the toilets in the building seemed to be overflowing despite the staff's best efforts, and showers weren't great - also, when it rained, the water pooled on the dorm floor and my stuff got wet. Don't go here if you value privacy or quiet, as the walls don't reach the ceilings, and sleep doesn't happen much! People are really friendly though, and it's great to socialise.
Really close to Chapultepec Avenue for market stalls and bars/restaurants. Staff were really friendly, helpful, fun and looked after everyone. V sociable atmosphere - internet, breakfast, snooker, X-box. Room was v spacious and comfy.
Charming hostel - lots of character, really comfy beds and nice bathroom. A little bit crowded though - there are too many beds in the dorms. Would thoroughly recommend Guanajuato as a town too - the Lonely Planet doesn't do it justice.
Booked a 3-person dorm although when we got there we had to go into a (tiny) 4-person dorm - unfortunately, there were 4 people's stuff still in there and the staff didn't know why. The hostel told us the other people had checked out, but it turned out they still had keys and turned up in the middle of the night. The dorm itself was tiny and cramped, with no windows and was right next to the doorbell which rang all night! Location was v good tho, and they were helpful in booking our bus tickets.
