    Had a really great stay in Republica - so much so I stayed numerous separate times. The accommodation is really clean, comfortable beds and really great staff - especially Daniela who greets you with a smile every day and is more than helpful with any question. She is what I will miss the most about Republica but I will be back :)

    Really nice hostel. Designed really well. I met some really nice people there, you have to make an effort though cause there weren‘t so many activities. The downside is that there isn‘t a quiet hour it seems so people stay up all night playing ping pong and hanging out in the pool area and the rooms just go off from there so didn‘t have the best sleep. Also internt is slow. Apart from that great place, would stay again.

    Really great hostel, only things I didn’t like was the price of beer (6,000) and having to hold a chain down for the shower 😐

    I really enjoyed my time in this hostel. The staff was super lovely and friendly, the breakfast was good. The atmosphere was chill and I met a lot of cool people. The location is perfect, close to everything. The only bad thing about the hostel is that the lockers cannot be trusted, cos they can be entered from outside. So dont leave any money there... They noticed the issue now too so hopefully they will fix the problem asap.

    Hostel is in a great location and has a lovely swimming pool in the middle. Rooms are spacious with comfortable beds. Just be careful as you can bash your legs on the metal bedframes which can be quite sore.

    Good breakfast, good beds and a nice pool. Only the happy hour changes between days apparently. When we arrived at 22:00 we could have a happy hour. When we asked the next evening at 22:00 they were kind of rude about it, so that was kind of disappointing. No privacy in the dorms because they have no curtains. Drinks are very expensive, kitchen is nice and overall a good stay.

    Good location, nice pool and breakfast. Inconvenient bathrooms ( I know saving water is important but it’s hard to wash your hair constantly pulling to get a bit of water). No atmosphere and events to gater people or go out together.
