We stayed there for one night and our stay was just perfect! :) We loved the hostel and the decoration. Everything was very clean and we felt really comfortable. :) We can also recommend the restaurant - especially the burgers and desserts.
The staff is also very friendly and helpful. Just perfect! :)

I was lucky that a friend recommended the Meiai as I was travelling alone and it was a really safe haven to step into on my arrival. The area feels very safe, hostel totally secure, and it's a real treat to stay at a hostel which is so new, enjoying clean, fresh bed linen and newly-fitted bathrooms. It was quite quiet when I was there, a little off season and I got loads of great advice from the reception staff about where to go and what to do. Marta was great! Thanks everyone for a great stay!

Room Tip: Maybe better to choose a room which does not look onto the street so it's a bit quieter. The hos...

Nice hostel with cool interior design is located in a safe neighborhood (close to Metro, restaurants and to the beach). The stuff is friendly and always ready to help.

You can spend evenings sitting in the hostel bar having cold beer or some snacks. The atmosphere here is very easy and funny.

I would stay here next time. For sure!

Nice, new hostel with 24 hour reception. Reception was very helpful upon arrival. Internet connection worked well and food service/bar was also very good, with attention to detail and customer service.
