“Great for peace, cheap stay and central”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

The hostel is located about 15 blocks from the center, so about 15mn. The neighborhood is ok, nothing fancy but safe. The place is spread on 5 floors, the top one is for girls only. The rooms are very basic, including a bed and a table/chair. There is hot water sometimes and wifi from the lobby only.
They give you a towel and some poilet paper when you arrive. Bring your soap though.
June to Sep is the rainy season, you want to bring something to repel them. I personally bought a kill insect blue light (not sure the proper name), works great.
All in all it's all very basic, but you get what you pay for. On the good note, it's very calm, no drunks coming back at 2 am shooting next door, which is what I was looking for.

Room Tip: I think they are pretty much the sames.Maybe the rooms on Humbolt would have less noise. I am on the...

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Definately not worth the money. The room I was checked into was full of dust. When the housekeeper had to clean it, she complained that she'd offered earlier to clean it, but I'd declined. Why would I need a clean room cleaned? The comforter was full of dust as well. The light supplied in the ceiling can't be higher than a 40 watt bulb - bring your own if you want to work or something. The kitchen appliances are new and nice, but the floor and cabinets leave a lot to be desired. Highlite of this place is the bathroom on the women's floor which is nice.
