    I stayed two nights at Botahostel my experience was most positive. Staff amazing, always willing to help with a big smile in their faces. The hostel is well located and safe. I have only a concerne in case you have any kind of respiratory allergies you shouldn't choose Bota, the room I slept in was very humid, the ceiling was full of mold. They clean the bathrooms and toilets every day, but it still need a cleaning. The dishcloth and tablecloth from the kitchen need to be replaced, too dirty.

    Small hostel, was pretty empty. WiFi was not very good. Could be Improved and the AC in the 8 bed dorm upstairs was turned on but not cooling at all. The beds were really small for a 1.90m guy, couldn’t stretch at all

    Security and so on was fine, but the water was cold in the showers my entire stay and most importantly the atmosphere just wasn’t very welcoming. I have had no problems in other hostel being a solo traveller and meeting people, but here it was quite difficult - maybe also because the common areas were inadequate. Wouldn’t recommend, especially not if you’re travelling alone.

    Really not a very good hostel. There were 14 beds in a room that should have had about 8 meaning nowhere to put your bags so it was a complete mess and beds were very noisy getting in and out. The common area was basically a TV with 1 chair facing it meaning maximum 2 people could watch something and the staff were always using it. Laundry service was 35reals and they literally just put it in the machine and air dried it so complete Rip off. Pretty small so not much atmosphere. Go elsewhere.
