I was obsessed with this hostel. It was so beautiful!!! The rooms were spacious, had a great view, and the hostel has a cozy and home-y vibe. I would move back. Definitely not a party vibe but just an all-around lovely spot with a nice kitchen and sitting area as well.

Been comming here since 2012...really like the location/barrio with tons of non hipster stuff to do. Nice view , SUPER breakfast and quiet place to rest. Recommend the h6 room. They sell organic eggs and ask for the bog oven to make gigantic pizza! C ya next time leute!

This was my first stay in a hostel, and Hostal Acuarela set the standard pretty high. The things that stood out to me were the following: a laid-back, chill atmosphere, common areas with couches, a computer, and a fireplace, hot water, friendly staff, and a great, substantial breakfast. Although it is a bit remote, the view of the harbor on... More

The hostal was in an excellent location on one of the more touristic hills. It is very close to many restaurants and is very quiet. A breakfast comprised of breads, cereal, fruit and coffee was provided. However, the bed was very uncomfortable and loud.

There was no hot water.... just like many other reviews stated. Everything else was awesome: the breakfast was awesome with lots of fruit options, it is located close to the action of the city and good restaurants, it was very clean, and the staff was helpful.

Pro: Nice and cosy hostel. Located on Cerro Alegre which is for me one of the nicest hills. Close to Bars and Clubs. So located very well if you don't mind walking up the hill for 5 - 10 minutes. Fair price. 24h reception. Nice view over city from own rooftop terrace. Con: Water temperature in shower changed sometimes (warm... More

We stayed here in hostel acuarela for 4 nights and it was the best experience of my life. The two Brazilian staff Alex and Michell with whom we spent the most time with, were incredibly friendly and helpful. The hostel has amazing facilities and feels like a home away from home. Would highly recommend!!!!!

The place was good, nice staff, and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the rooms got enough space. The breakfast was OK, not bad nor good. The location was the best, inside the cerro Alegre, near all the main attractions. Recommended

This was my worst hostel experience ever! Staff incredibly rude. They made a mistake with their booking system and treated me as if it was my fault! Francisco snapped at me and wasn't apologetic for the inconveniences at all. Wouldn't recommend anybody to stay there ever if you can avoid it!
