    Republica Hostel was a great choice for me to stay in during my travels. A beautiful building with a great courtyard, pool, kitchen, and bar on the bottom floor, the space is a great place to socialize. The rooms are all clean with plenty of space for washrooms and showers. The third floor is a nice terrace with a small pool and provides for more down tempo vibes than the bar and courtyard below. The best thing however is the staff. Much love!

    Good hostel, could be a little cleaner and the staff was sometimes hard to find. Great pool, nice open kitchen. Pod style bunk rooms are a nice but got very very hot when the electricity was out and AC couldn't run.

    Very Good

    Pro: - nice beds in cubes (there were ants though, but I don't care) - nice hostel - good location Cons: - no hostel made for cooking for yourself. We never take breakfast in hostels, as it is never enough for us. Here the kitchen is closed until 10 am for payed breakfast, so we had to wait until then. S**t cooking facilities, no place to put stuff. - hostel is like a business place, not like a personal home. Strange rules are applied.

    The hostel itself was cute, I love the cube design beds with the curtains. I didn't like soo much the shared bathrooms. They weren't very clean, the paper was piling up at the top of the trash can. And they smelled like pee.

    I rented the private room. It overlooked the pool. The noise from the pool area was incessant, beginning with breakfast dishes clattering at 6:00 am and finally tapering off when the regatton stopped blasting at 11 pm, 2 pm on weekends. Here’s the thing. If you want to party, there are 100+ places to drink, dance, talk in Old Town. Management should be more considerate of those trying to sleep by MANAGING the noise. I wasted my money here. It ain’t cheap if you can’t sleep.
