We stayed 2 nights here in October 2012 before a cruise. Enjoyed the ambiance and the location. Air conditioned rooms get really chilly at night. The NuyoRican cafe/bar music downstairs was not an issue for us because we booked on the 3rd floor. If you stay on floors 1 or 2 you might hear a lot of noise but we didn't really have any problems. There is no elevator so be prepared to do a lot of walking up and down stairs. Cafe Puerto Rico and Plaza de Colon are just around the corner so you can get to food and drinks relatively quickly, and it's not that bad to walk a few blocks to get to other places. They do not provide shampoo/conditioner as it is like a European hostel, so all you get is soap and towels, but the shower was nice and hot. The place is run by youthful and energetic people. If you are looking for a hotel that is right on the cruise ship pier you won't want to book here, but it's not that far of a cab ride to the terminal. They do not accept Discover card and they are very stringent on their cancellation policies. Overall, I would stay here again.
