I was happy with me stay here! Had some really nice conversations with Angelo who gave me lots of recommendations. The other staff were nice but a bit slow to help sometimes. I felt that this hostel attracted nice, interesting, sociable people, and I made lots of friends here and felt safe! There were a few cockroaches in the room, but I just accepted and got used to their inevitability (the room was even treated for roaches and they came back anyway). I would stay here again!

Lovely pool and good breakfast. Kitchen looked good. No real social area - they don’t allow you to bring drinks in but only sell beer from the fridge. Area is safe but you need to take Ubers everywhere
