we were staying during the volcanic flight shutdown period and spent three nights in a private room. in our twin room my sheets were clean but my friends bed had dirty sheets that looked slept in. there was dirty patches and three sad little hairs.
the staff, contrary to other reports, were *exceptional*! so friendly and kind and particularly one of the girls who went out of her way to help us during a stressful time.
the manager, on the other hand, wasn't half as helpful. everyone was desperately trying to book flights and get home - it was total chaos - and he was refusing to provide discounts and/or refunds on rooms which were already booked and paid for but wouldn't be stayed in. he was totally unsympathetic to what was happening around and though i partially respect his desire to keep firm on his policies - his delivery and approach was not helping an already stressed situation.
the room, other than dirty sheets, was very lovely - big and clean, well designed. same with showers - and plenty of hot water despite other reports. the location isn't great, it's much further out than other hostels and you need to change metro stops to get to most of the key sights. but if you want a bargain, then look right here. we also spent a night at Chocolate Hostel and this one was FAR better.
