Chillin on the roof is awesome after the day spent on a beach or sightseeing the town. They have hammocks there! Helpful staff can help you to solve whole problems you may have : ) Greets... More

I liked this hotel, the reception staff was very nice, Diego is super kind but the bed hurted my back, it was in very bad shape. Also I didn't have control of the mini split which annoyed me a lot. The shared kitchen has a rule, write your name on your food and prevent if from getting eaten by others,... More

Thank you very much for your opinion. I see if I can identify the mattress and change it. The aircon is turned on and off by receptionist to prevent losing the controler. It has a comfortable temperature set up and you can ask to change it or turn it on/off at the reception, we are happy to assist. We try... More

Dont stay here, We were totally appaulled by the service we recieved here. The prices are arbitrarily arranged, and we ended up paying more than others in the same room. The rude and unfriendly staff were not willing to rectify the situation, let alone listen to what we had to stay. There is nothing special about rhe facilities, and you... More

Our prices are fixed and change depending on the season or occasion (christmass, new year, festivals..). There are discounts possible depending various factors (lengts of stay, nights paid in advance..). If you discover that somebody from your dorm has a discounted price it's not a reason to demand this discounted price for every guest. You demanded a cheaper nights agressively... More

Not the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in and the doors in our room were really noisy so when anyone used the bathroom if=t woke everyone up. However the staff were very friendly and helpful and it had a great atmosphere, Could have easily chilled out in the communal ares for a while. Plus good location for beach etc.

Really nice hostel, close to 5th ave and accesible prices. But the best thing is the mood inside, with people who work there and also guests. Totally recommend it for having a nice time, meeting new people and maybe even making friends. People who come here are travelers and not tourists, so is great for sharing stories and getting to...

After seeing the responses by the manager to guests who have had a bad experience, my experience here doesn't surprise me a bit. The manager is unwilling to accept any criticism of his property and simply excuses all criticism by accusing reviewers of not being the hostel type, or expecting too much out of a low cost stay. To make... More
