    So so cold! There is no heating in the big dormitory and the door doesn’t close properly so it’s freezing inside. But the building is beautiful, the breakfast is decent and the staff is very helpful. The location is great for pickups as well.

    Staff was nice and location was great. Bathrooms could've used a bit more attention. Rooms were comfy but wifi was terrible--we ended up having to go to a coffee shop just to be able to check into our flights!

    Spent one night and was only there to sleep however be aware of the cigarette and marijuana smoke that permeates through the upstairs via the common area downstairs. If you’re sensitive to that, I would ask for a bed further away. Bathrooms clean enough however towels should be free. 3 sols? I can take the bus for cheaper. Nice cats.

    Very Good

    Place has a nice vibe, but the WiFi is inconsistent and does not work in the rooms. The breakfast is basic compared to other places I've stayed. They don't provide eggs. And the showers are only warm for about 2 minutes before they become frigid. They also have a kitten running around, which would've been fine except for the fact that my traveling companion is very allergic.

    Cool building. Nice breakfast. Helpful staff. Beds are pretty bad, sleeping on springs no matter the price is never a nice night so I moved. When the only purpose of a hostel is to sleep it might as well be a good sleep!

    I don’t recommend this hostel. It’s untidy and unclean. We had hair in our bed, a tampon string on the floor in the bathroom and a used bandaid still on the floor near the bin in our room. The hot water lasts 30 seconds as the hot water system only holds about 10 litres. There is no atmosphere, there were only 2 other people we saw. We found it very strange they decided to paint the floor of the hostel in the morning we checked out. We couldn’t leave our room without getting paint on our shoes

    The state of the bathroom was awful. No toilet roll, no soap, no hand towels, some didn’t flush, some had no seats, one bathroom was flooded while I was there. The kitchen was ridiculously unhygienic, there were bits of food in the sink, under the sink, on the countertops, the corners were caked in sludge and there were no utensils, just a lot of bowls. There was only one plug socket for 10 people in our room which sparked when you used it. The whole place stank of cigarette smoke and urine.
