Liked: The locatiion is really good and the wifi was quite strong.

Disliked: I decided to stay here in a private room and it was dreadful. The room was very small and pokey and quite uncomfortable. There are rooms at a similar price in hotels and better hostels. The breakfast was pretty basic and there was no real atmosphere in the hostel.

Liked: Fui numa época de muito frio e o aquecedor do quarto e o chuveiro quente funcionaram a contento. As meninas da recepção são muito gentis e simpáticas. Auxiliaram-me com dicas e sugestões de lugares para comer e sair.

Disliked: O quarto para 4 pessoas (masculino) é muito pequeno, o que o torna muito quente e abafado. O café da manhã é bem fraco, mesmo para um hostel (que costuma ter cafés da manhã fracos).

Liked: Nice hostel, with a lot of common areas and great atmosphere. The staff was very helpful, hot water worked fine, the heating in the room took a while to get going but then worked fine. The location is really good, near the Recoleta tourist spots and walking distance from the centre, with subway nearby, restaurants and supermarkets. The front door has to be opened by a staff member every time, which can be annoying but is actually a really important security measure.

Disliked: It doesn't have lockers inside the rooms, only a few in the corridors. There are only a few bathrooms for everybody, in the morning is always a problem. And there are some higiene issues: there was a bizarre leakage problem in a urinol, and despite being told, the staff didn't even put a warning on it. That made for quite a dirty bathroom... The breakfast wasn't too bad at first, with toasts and cereal, but one morning I found bugs in the cereal, so that was it for that.

Liked: Staff is friendly and helpful. They have a kitchen where you can cook your diner.

Disliked: There is no warm water in the morning. The breakfast is really poor. Rooms are really different from each other, some are very good and some really bad (strange smell, musty smell, no good ventilation, floors creak, small in size and hight). Really not value for your money.
