    There was a super chilled out vibe in the hostel, with a massive communal area and a scenic rooftop bar. The showers have good water pressure and the staff are super friendly. It’s also connected to a café that serves great coffee!

    Cafe Ondas was a great place to stay. As I tired traveler I really enjoyed having café-food avalible until 8pm. All the staff where super friendly and helpful. The hostel itself is really small, probably only 20 guest or so, which makes it feel very safe and homely. On a map, it might look like it's far away from things - but in reality inte only a 4 min trainride to the city center. They have a bar that is open to locals, so if you're looking for a place to practice your spaish, this is is it!

    Super cozy hostel and chilled vibes. It’s not in the touristic area but still easy to reach the places you want to go.

    Hear me out.. the hostel itself is not the most amazing hostel, the kitchen is a bit banged up and the rooms a little shabby but nothing horrible considering the price. HOWEVER the atmosphere in this hostel is great and the staff are the best ive met in a hostel anywhere. Truly great people and fun times and an amazing social atmosphere, not to mention it is in a safe location and a short walk to the metro from which you can access the rest of the city. Id stay for a month if I could

    Great sociable hostel. Nice rooftop bar to hang out and meet others including locals. Rooms a bit hot due to just having a fan but this is advertised. Hostel was clean despite other reviews saying otherwise

    Super chilled place, cool common areas and roof top patio. Unfortunately, 2 out of 4 showers were out of order.

    As a solo female traveler, the location was awesome - right by the metro and felt safe getting around (didn't really go out at night tho so can't speak to that). Quieter atmosphere when I was there - and more long-term travelers than 'quick' visitors. I'm sure it varies based on who books when though. Floors were a bit dirty but showers worked and the rooftop was nice, so no complaints from me! Only thing: I wish they provided a map with highlights/things to do nearby like some other hostels do

    Decent hostel, the rooftop bar was great and the bar staff all lovely. It’s a bit shabbier than the photos and the staff weren’t very friendly or helpful. But decent location, out of the action but not too far out and supermarkets and restaurants nearby. The bar was fun with travellers and locals, good drinks selection and music. We didn’t try the food here but they did serve a small menu.

    The hostel has a great, relaxed vibe and an awesome rooftop terrace. It's also very close to metro station Floresta. The area itself is super residential - the busier bits of Laureles are quite far away. If you want to cook for yourselves or use the cafe, this is a god option, but there's not much around in terms of restaurants. The bed was really uncomfortable. Mattress and pillows were in protective plastic cases, so it was super hot and every movement loud We were charged 5% to pay by card
