Liked: The boss is very nice. As she says she is busy a lot, but you never see them in the hostel except for entertainments with the renter.

Disliked: Vanazul Hostel is not a new hostel. When I booked the hostel last year in July, the hostel had an average rating of about 70%. Since this was the cheapest hostel for carnival, I've yet booked it. The reviews that have all suddenly disappeared was remarkable.The mattresses are certainly ten years old. The pillows are smelly and brown. The whole hostel is rather muddy. For 16 beds, there is only one shower and one toilet. In the hostel are also two dogs and five cats, so if you have an allergy should be looking for something else. In the bedroom there are just fans, they churn up the dirt of the soil, blocking the nose or it starts to cough or sneeze. The rooms of the dorms are all open, so that you can not sleep. Only when the last is in bed it gets quiet. The shower is so loud that you think yourself to stand under it, instead of lying in bed.

Liked: Enchanting. Relaxed vibe, and in a great area. Coming from Texas, this was the best place I could have imagined coming to.

Disliked: It was raining and the outside got real wet, but nothing in the rooms got wet at all. But every morning, they would sweep away the water.
