    I had the private room which was tiny... but it was air-conditioned and had a great bathroom. The hotel was in a perfect location to walk to everything and it was in the middle of it all! Staff was very good. I never felt unsafe. And the value for what you get is outstanding.

    I really liked it here. The 10-bed dorm was comfortable and the bathroom/shower was very spacious. However I did notice that there was nothing to dry your hands off in any of the bathrooms - no towels or paper towels. I used toilet paper to dry my hands. But besides that, I loved the hostel. It's definitely not a party hostel and not super sociable, but it's a lovely environment with good people. Location is perfect and I will definitely stay here again.

    Has a real "boutique" feel to it with swimming pool on ground floor and jacuzzi on the roof. Great location in the old town. There's no storage in the single room, not even hooks or shelves, so everything stays on the floor.

    The hotel is in a perfect location to walk to everything in the old town. Bathroom facilities are really clean and breakfast was okay. Staff was not the friendliest (Natalia is the exception). Great AC in the room, but there are no hooks or shelves, so everything stays on the floor. It is very difficult to get to the top of the bunk bed.

    Mostly of the hostel is good. The only thing I complain is the 6 bed room dorm and the bathroom. The dorm is tiny, if you are on the bed of the top is annoying that you have the locker at the bottom of the bed, due the fact you have to climb to your bed with your luggage, the lockers should be out of the bunks. Also, the bathroom is so stretch. If you are tall and you have to poop, you will hit your knees with the door, is so uncomfortable, btw, inside the bathrooms there is no ventilation.

    Beautiful hostel but my room of six capsules was small. I had to sleep with my suitcase in my capsule because there was no room to put it anywhere. There is a locker above your bed but not big enough for a carry on suitcase. Breakfast is amazing. You get to pick for three to four different options. You have to pay for a towel.

    Pretty nice relaxed hostel. Rooms are fairly clean, although it's not quite a lux as it looks in the photos. Staff are nice, although the hostel doesn't really do it's own events or anything. Rooftop 'cold tub' is cool and much needed in this city.

    I found the staff very not helpful. The room was bare bones and the pillow very flimsy. There was no hot water. The hot tub was never turned on. My room was right next to the bar and very loud. There was nothing done to encourage socializing between guests. I found egg shell in my eggs.

    Terrible experience. I arrived at the hostel at 22:00 and I've been told that I can't take my room because the locker is broken. No emphaty, zero proffesionalism. I was obliged to do a ne booking and take a taxi to a diferent place. Never choose it!!!!
