Customer review

With my spouse / partner

Backpacking / gap year

19 January 2014

Liked: Nice staff.

Disliked: we booked a 4 bed dorm which turned out to be a 6 bed dorm in a building across the road from the main hostel. This building didn't seem very secure, anyone could have walked in from the street and straight into our room as we weren't allowed to lock the door,which kept blowing open in the night. Also the beds shake a lot whenever anyone walks down the hallway...., didn't get a good nights sleep at all.

Liked: curtains on the bunks are a good idea, as are individual lights. I like the social area and the kitchen facilities. The showers are good and always powerful and hot.

Disliked: You need to rent cutlery which is a bit off. There are a minimal number of plug sockets for the amount of people in the hostel and these are mostly in hallways, none in the rooms. The breakfast is abysmal, small, stale bread and awful jam. Was clean, however no soap in the sinks by the urinals for the duration of our stay.

Liked: Good Wifi. Big locker for each person in the dorms. No waiting for showers or toilets. Good information on tours and glacier trips. Some beds have curtains over them. Each bed has a light and a shelf.

Disliked: Staff were not so friendly. Huge and felt like staying in university dorms. Rooms are small. Breakfast for dorms rooms was rubbish (bread, butter, jam cofffee and tea). We walked in on breakfast for private rooms by mistake which looked AMAZING. Cream and chocolate and cake and dulce and juice and all sorts.

Liked: Cheap. Comfy bed. Curtains over beds. Lockers. Size of hostal communal areas.

Disliked: Lack of anything useful in the kitchen, pretty unequipped. Rental of knife and forks because people obviously steal them. Shoddy breakfast, only bread and jam available, not the same as other HI hostels.
