I was there in 2012 and I have very nice memories about this hostel. The staff are really young and full of ideas! During my stay there I always felt very good in their company and also met many other friends. I'm sure to visit this hostel again if I return to MVD!

Great location, really close to ciudad vieja must-see spots. The beach is only few blocks away, also a supermarket just crossing the street. The staff are so nice, helpful and friendly, especially Marco, Gonzalo and Cindy. Beautiful and fun decoration and a Great place to sleep or chill and meet new people. Also is a secure to leave your things.

The hostel is in a decent location, the staff are helpful + friendly and I had fun on my 2 night stay there. That said... The place is small and so full of stuff that it must be impossible to clean properly (at least I guess that's the reason why it's dirty). The dorms are RAMMED - there truly is... More

This place is in a safe part of town and close to the beach and supermarket. The place itself needs some maintenance especially with its locks and door handles but we still felt safe. The place is small and the vibe is that of a close family. There is even a cat and a dog that are there to welcome... More

Lovely place! The bedrooms are pretty big, to ~12 people. Good breakfast included in the dorm price. The most remarkable is the staff: always helpful, give useful tips about the city, tours and places. All of them speak english. Realmente muito bom!

I stayed here in a double room for a week in low-peak season. The room was big but had no cupboard or even hooks to hang a coat on. The staff were really friendly and helpful and spoke english well. The hostel is in a decent location but has a very, very small kitchen and only three toilets and showers... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and as much as the room was not that clean or amazing the staff was very friendly. For 12 bucks a night you really can't beat it. It had breakfast included as well as was only a 5 min walk to the beach. It was 15/20 mins from the town. There were places to... More

I was put in the front 12 bed dorm put at first but the air in was in a far corner of a decided space so could feel it in the larger section of the room. I changed rooms into the back 12bed dorm and it was way better. Good: some staff mean well. They offer bread and coffee as... More

The hostel was pretty busy when we were there and it seemed as though many of the facilities had "just broken." The line to hang clothes was broken, the bikes were broken and not able to ride, the door to our room was missing a door handle, several of the lockers were broken, and the sink in the kitchen backed...

We arrived to Live MVD Hostel thru Hostelworld, due to its high rating and low prices. Our choice was great and I would repeat the experience again! I definitely highlight the common areas, especially the kitchen. Best hostel kitchen I've ever been in: everything was so neat, clean, and organized. The pots and pans shone and were good quality which... More
