Just came back from a 4 night stay at this hostel and I am so glad I do not have to spend another night there.
We arrived around 10pm and the party was in full swing. We made our way to the front desk to be greeted by two very drunk employees. Could barely hear what he was saying over the music and him slurring his words. We went to our room to find only one available bed, there was two of us. I returned to the front desk and told them. They made it apparent I was being a burden and reluctantly came up to see what was going on. They came to the room and told us they didnt know who this other girl was and why she was in the room and then said we would have to make do. He took out a disgusting pull out bed with an even worse mattress and told us to sleep there. It was vile. My friend and I ended up sleeping on a bunk bed together as the mattress was just too nasty. The bathroom was awful as well.. Didn't look cleaned and the shower barely worked. The room was atrocious.
We went to the desk the next morning and demanded we get moved rooms. We did. The next room was better. Cleaner and more spacious.
The food was average but you have to get there super early in order to get any. It goes so quickly. Breakfast is just bread and cereal. For lunch we had a pasta salad and then dinner was chicken and rice.
The only good thing about this hostel is the location. A 5 minute walk from the beach and bus stops.
I would not recommend staying here. Spend a little more and find a nicer hostel or hotel. We passed the South Beach Hostel one day and even from the outside its a lot more attractive and the inside looks nice too.
I am aware this is a travelers hostel and not a 5 star hotel but even in hostels there is a standard and this hostel is way below. Do not be deceived by the photos on their website, the rooms look nothing like that.
Seriously, think twice about going here.
