I didn't enjoy my stay at this hostel at all. We paid slightly extra for a deluxe double and when we got there it was the smallest room I have ever seen, basically just a bed. We noticed one of the rooms next to us was larger and free so asked if we could move there and they said no it is taken in an unfriendly manor which we accepted but then no one ever took this room. Also the room next door had an adjoining window so you could see into the next room if you had wanted and when they got up in the middle of the night and switched their light on it woke me up as light poured in.
They advertise a common area but the whole time we were there the TV was just being watched by the staff/owners with no room for anyone else. Also there is only one shared bathroom which is not kept very clean at all, if several guests are to share one small bathroom then it is important it is regularly cleaned. This didn't seem to happen. The only thing I would say about this hostel is that if you want to explore the North then this is a good location as it is right by the Zona Rosa which has lots of malls and bars/restaurants. I would not recommend this Hostel overall though. I stayed in Jan 2011.
