“Great service, poor cleanliness”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2010

A great location but the property seems in dire need of a good renovation - the rooms are damp and the bathrooms are quite old and mouldy. Our room had a sink in it which was falling off the wall. I'm not sure how this won a Hostebookers award for cleanliness in November 2009. Didn't sleep too well as the mould caused allergic reactions for my wife and I.

The staff here are great but it seems like their friends use it as a meeting place every night so good luck trying to relax and watch the TV!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2010

I had made reservations within two months in advance through hostelbookers, but when i got there they didnt have the rooms available for us. We arrived in bsas at 2 am and the guy from the staff suggested us to walk til a lousy hostel nearby. The other hostel was awful, and we had to spend the next morning looking for another one.

Kaixo seems to be nice, but don't trust your reservation: confirm it until the last second!

Fabio is great. The service was absolutely perfect, nice people. A hostel mate and myself discovered bedbugs chomping on us one night, and we showed one of the guys the evidence. I knew since the day I got there that it had bedbugs because I woke up very itchy with little marks. They moved me to a different room, and the guy who was the night crew that night seemed very flustered and apologetic. It wasn't his fault, but the news seemed to ruin his night. As long as they take care of the bug problem, I wouldn't mind coming back here.
