While I found the hostel to be an overall good value and rather clean for a dorm, there is a club nearby that is SO UNBELIEVABLY LOUD that I would not stay here again. It's actually uncharacteristically loud for Dominical, even compared to other bars. I'm not normally a stickler for noise levels and tend to sleep heavily but I don't appreciate being woken up by the bass from a club a few buildings down shaking my windows and keeping me up till 2pm, especially if I have an early morning the next day (which you most likely will if you have a side trip). I would use this place as a last cheap resort on a Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday night because you will not sleep. heard the same from other guests. A shame because other than that the place is pretty nice but i don't like hating my stay multiple days a week.
also, bathroom is decent and cleaned daily, but there is only one toilet.
