    The hostel was really clean, the staff was nice and it was situated close to everything. The area felt really safe, which is important to me as a solo female traveller. Thumbs up!

    Really good hostel experience! the staff is amazing, as well as the bedrooms. The only bad thing is that they only have like 3 showers for all the rooms.

    We stayed in the 3 bed private room with an en-suite. Room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The room even had a little conserveratory at the side to sit with a table and three chairs. The only issue we had was when we arrived we had agreed we would leave our bags there at 10.30 and come back at 1 for check in. However there were people checking out as we came in and there was an issue with a towel missing in their room. The receptionist left is sitting there for 40 minutes.

    Fantastic hostel. It was exactly what I needed at the time - somewhere clean (extremely clean!), quiet with a bit of privacy and soo central. The location is perfect. I’ve stayed in a lot of hostels and this has to be one of my all time favourites. Important to note that the sheets are extra however. The staff were lovely as well, especially Roderigo. Would recommend to everyone I know.

    I liked my stay. My biggest concern was that this facility doesn't RECYCLE. That would be a very nice change to see. It is difficult to stay in places where you see all everything it and the guest use going to the trash. Would love to see this change! Thank you.

    Very Good

    This hostel was decent, but no flair. There weren’t really spaces to hangout and relax and there were tours or dinners available to guests. This would be a good hostel for people traveling in groups but not so much for solo travelers as there aren’t many community activities together.

    Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 5 days, we didnt spend too much time in the hostel as we wanted to see all of the sights. The staff were helpful when we asked any questions and were available 24hour. On several occasions we were woken up by people checking in at the early hours of the morning and these people were not very respectful of the others in the room. On on specific occasion, a few boys checked in at 3am and left at 7am making more noise. However overall it was not a bad stay

    Over priced for what you get, place is tiny and not that nicely decorated and they don't give you sheets on the bed unless you pay. Don't see why they would expect you to sleep on a waxy wipe downable mattress cover.

    Mi peor experiencia en un hostel!! Me sacaron el equipaje de la pieza y lo dejaron en otro lugar sin mi autorización! Tomaron mi ropa del balcón y la botaron a la basura!!, por supuesto que nadie respondió por ella. Además circula gente desconocida en las habitaciones, aún cuando tienen lleno de carteles anunciando que en el lugar roban las pertenencias. Cada vez que se ingresa al edificio hay que tocar el timbre y presentarse con el recepcionista de turno!, algunos con un español muy básico..

    We had booked a private 6 person dorm and when we first arrived the receptionist realized she had given away one of the beds in our room to another girl who had to be asked to leave We had no key to lock our PRIVATE room for the first 2 days and so a cleaning lady walked in without knocking or asking and just walked around our room while people were trying to sleep as well as our door being opened by receptionists we had ZERO privacy for a lot of our stay. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful
