    Great atmosphere in hostel, although if you want to go to sleep early be warned it’s very noisy until late. Free breakfast and staff were really helpful and friendly. Only thing was there was only a couple of wall plugs in the room so was a bit of a pain charging anything. Apart from that really good hostel.

    Enjoyed staying here, due to its calm vibe. Loved the outside area and getting to know people in the kitchen . Some more activities would be helpful for a solo traveller :)

    Was a very decent hostel to stay at, bit basic but ultimately you pay for what you get, and you certainly get good value for money. Comfy beds, sufficient storage space and a nice communal lounge are the main features.

    Poor sound insulation. There were 6 Americans staying next door, I can hear every single word they said, not to mention their screams and laughs.

    La limpieza sobre todo en la cocina común hace mucha falta. Para alojarse un par de días no está mal, recomiendo llevar productos para las picaduras. El desayuno es lo mejor de todo pero el señor que lo atiende tiene muy mal carácter. Cuidado cuando vayais desde la estación norte al hostel, la ruta es a través del Barrio Rojo, muy peligroso incluso a partir de las 18 horas y aun sin ser todavía de noche.
