    Republica is in a great location right in the middle of the old town. There's lots bars and restaurants nearby and the onsite bar is a good place to meet people. The beds are nice and private, although can get a bit hot at night. A few things I wasn't the biggest fan of; the laundry was ridiculously expensive. The most I've paid for in the world, and the hostel isn't that comfy. The staff were nice and I met a lot of great people. I would definitely stay again and was perfect for a trip away.

    Great location, and good security, but the atmosphere was just meh. They didn't have anything organized on a Saturday night and there wasn't a lot of socializing. The front desk staff were fairly helpful, but also definitely commissioned on the specific trips they offer. Overall an ok stay.

    Very nice hostel, has aircon, pool, free brek, good location, and most people I met before were staying there so I think it’s quite good for meeting people. Cons are there isn’t much atmosphere of people drinking etc in the evening and they have key cards for the doors - no hostel I’ve stayed in so far has keys they just use lockers and I lost mine in the room somewhere and had to pay 30k. Just a money making scheme imo and I didn’t like that

    Very Good

    The staff and the atmosphere really make this place, all very friendly and welcoming. The common spaces are really nice and the pool is great. We only stayed 1 night but wish we could have stayed another, the wifi is good throughout and it comes with a free breakfast. We also stayed in Casa Movida down the road and felt that this was more welcoming even if it was less hotel like. The beds were comfy but not massive and the AC was ok. Showers aren’t warm but when it’s hot outside it’s not really needed.

    -The bunker actually looked (and felt) like a solitary prison cell -Showers only have cold water and no place to hold your belonging -2 of 4 bathroom stalls doors were damaged so it was a challenge to use it (mostly when more than 2 people had to use it at the same time) -Part of the staff was super nice and part of if was super rude -They sold me a tour to a private Rosario Island all inclusive and I was taken to a public beach with not included. It was a nightmare to even get a partial refund
