“A great place to meet other travelers, affordable and a cool experience”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I enjoyed the Chocolate Hostel for their service, location, and amenities.
Having stayed at several hostels through my life I can say that this hostel has the spirit of any other hostel I stayed at in Europe or South America. You can sense the community feel when everyone gathers by the pool, bbq, or just hang out.
The dorms are very spacious, and it is very convenient to have a kitchen, bathroom and living room area which you only share with a few other travelers.
The amenities were great for $27.75 a night/ wifi, laundry facilities on premise (very important if you have been backpacking for 2 months like myself)

The hostel itself is not bad, but not good either. It's like the house I rent near my school. We have roommate in another room, we share living room and kitchen. Everything is OK except the smell. The room smells really bad. It's like some chemical elements all over the room. The bed is not clean. Anyway, I would not like stay here again. With the same price, you can have a great bid/book for a better hotel such as Quality Inn or other chains. That's way much better.

Dirty, noisy, stinky, drugs and smoke everywhere, the ideal pleace for dirty backpackers. You find descent rooms 2 blocks away from this, ... and cheaper.
Terrible service, to be franc, it does not exist, swimming pool full of dog hairs, unbeleivable.

Room Tip: Llook around 17th street and US 1, there are descent rooms, clear and clean for the same value.

disgusting! bed fleas, no toilet paper, no light bulbs work so we got a lamp, a sheet as a blanket, dirty dishes, a dirty condom on the counter top!! They had assure us it was cleaned before we moved in and one of the staff must have broken into the room. staff smoking weed. other tenants sniffing paint. would not give us a refund so they got a week out of us for free we had to leave. wouldnt recommed to anyone.

I was lucky to have only one nice roommate. It was great to have the whole apartment for ourselves. Location was great, pool was nice. It was nice to have a kitchen as well. I recommend it. Just don't have too high expectations and you will enjoy yourselves. The price is great!
