    The most fancy hostel I have experienced. Staffs are really friendly and welcoming during my stay. Such a pity that I couldn’t visit the hostel rooftop to enjoy full experience due to the restriction of a private event. The only thing I find less satisfied is that the space itself makes it hard to exchange with other travelers. However, it’s definitely worth staying, especially in comparison between price and quality.

    I like The Independente Hostel. It's in a nice location, very convenient. The staffs are kind and responsible. You can have breakfast in the hostel restaurant, they are nice. Since the location is near some tourist places, at night there might still be some noise outside the hostel.

    The Hostel is really nice and comfortable. The staff is very welcome (specially the woman who is in charge of the breakfast). Sometimes you can hear a little bit the music at night (from 10-1am) but nothing really disturbing. The hostel has an incredible gourmet restaurant super value for money. I strongly recommend this hostel!
