This is the second time I stay here! It is cheap, close to everything, and staff is very nice! Clean rooms and pleasant smell. :) Don't expect the Ritz. Always remember you get what you paid for. :) hot water, safe, a/c, cable. It does get loud at night, due to the bars next door, but nothing that bothered me... More

I was there in 2010, the stuff were so nice and gentle, trying to make you feel confortable. The rooms and the kitchen were clean, but the best is the terrace and the whole atmosphere. I really recommend this place.

There really isn't any other cheap options with this kind of a location. We just needed to stay for a night and it is close to the bus station. It is too bad that they don't take better care of this property and clear out some of the rif-raf. It would be best to pay a little more and walk... More

The girl that checked me in was very very nice and helpful. The rooms are very basic but ok. Wifi is pretty much terrible and only works in the lobby area. Good location right near the action. A bit expensive for privates.

I’ve stayed at Maria Sabina several times a year, for the last 3 years, and plan to keep going back. Its location, the great people it attracts and the low price are just a few of the great things about it. Don't expect a 5star, and if you're a light sleeper think about packing your earplugs, remember IT'S A HOSTEL!... More

This hostel is the best choice if you want good location for a good price. As soon as you step inside the door you can consider yourself like family, staff is great and helpful. One block from the beach and two from the bar street you can't go wrong:) been back three times!

I was here for 4 days, the kitchen was not hygenic, everyone had to clean their dishes some didnt so you would end up cleaning after them. The fridge was a disaster as you couldnt put anything in it, it was packed full with other peoples food. And didnt even know if it was there for ages. Another thing that... More
