The entrance and common areas here have a more trendy or upscale feel than most other hostels I stayed in. The dorm was a typical dorm, but not bad in any way. This was also just a block from the beach, and across the street from the grocery store so the location was very convenient.
The Pros: 1) Great (relatively- this is South America afterall) breakfast included a slew of different breads and spreads, ham, cheese, several types of juices, fruits. 2) The dorm room we stayed in (6 beds) also had an ensuite bathroom. 3) The staff members were ALL really friendly and gave great advice for where to go and what to do, etc. 4) Common area had a pool table and piano which made for good socializing.
The Cons: 1) You are allowed to use the kitchen to cook for yourself, but to cook what? There is only a microwave and small toaster oven, extremely limited cooking utensils and definitely not a stove. We ended up eating out more than we planned. Kitchen is fine for making sandwiches and stuff but if you´re here for more than a few days you´ll be craving a cooked meal. 2) While we were there the internet was constantly in and out, and the staff didnt really seem all that concerned about trying to fix it, which was kind of annoying since we had just arrived and needed to have some communications with back home. 3) No air conditioning in the rooms, just two fans. The lucky ones got the fan facing their bed at night... the others just suffered.
