I stayed for one night. The hostel was dirty, the "dormitory" was a mattress on the floor. No staff spoken any English, everything was just a horrible experience here, cold showers, poor wifi, poor service. I checked out as soon as I attempted to eat their breakfast and found another place to stay.

Whilst one of the staff members was very friendly and helpful, I can not recommend this hostel. I don't often write tripadvisor reviews but I felt I should as I didn't feel safe staying here - the hostel is on a quiet, run down back street which was OK during the day but it did not feel safe after dark...

I went on vacations during carnaval. When we arrived to the hostel I realized that they make overbooking. They didn´t respect our reservation and almost other´s 8 people. The hostel was full at the moment so we didn´t have a place to stay. Moreover, the place looks really dirty.

Clean, friendly staff, perfect kitchen to prepare meals. Very good value. The owner is there for any needs, the pool table is a great addition. There is a great comraderie among hostel guests, and this adds value to the stay.

I took a chance staying here as I couldn't find many reviews, but I am glad I did as I cannot fault it. The owner even upgraded my room for the same price. Had A/C, TV,...

Good staff, friendly people, and the owner is in the establishment almost all the time. Bedrooms are large and spacious, clean and aery. By the time i was there, could see peeling paint on the walls. Another problem: bedrooms without lockers. Breakfast is not so good, but in other hand, free coffee was avaiable almost all time. Bathrooms are clean...

Nice place, nice and very helpful staff, coffee available almost all the time, little breakfast with bread and marmalade and juices, pool table, kitchen, little, cheep, local bar just next to it, good internet, AC. Little bit loud in the evening (good to have earplugs if want to sleep early), only one person speaking English.
