First off, the location was terrible. A friend was stabbed in the chest down the road from the hostel.
Next, the hostel owner would arbitrarily raise the already high price of services (day trips, barbeques, room prices).
The hostel owner LIVES at the hostel with his two sons. The eldest son is allowed to eat the guests' food from the hostel fridge without fear of reprisal.
The youngest son also eats food from the hostel fridge and from pans guests have cooking on the stove. He also exposed himself to many of the guests while I stayed there.
Don't let the free wine rope you in. It was the worst wine (cheap, poor quality Bonarda, not even Malbec) and they were often all out.
Breakfasts quality was highly variable in that it often consisted of hockey pucks for biscuits, watery coffee and no fresh fruit.
