Liked: Me gusto mucho la hostal, la ubicación es lo mejor si quieres ir de fiesta, ya que esta al lado de Lapa. El personal es muy amable, siempre con ganas de ayudar y hacerte sentir cómodo, los baños siempre limpios.

Disliked: Es incomodo que te pidan pagar parte de la estadía antes del viaje, mediante depósito bancario o paypal, considerando que ya pagas a través de Hostelbookers.

Liked: Ryan and a girl with curly hair and whose name beginning with M I cannot spell are really spot on. The 23-bed dorm is spacious and airy, with high ceilings and tall triple bunks. The amply-proportioned lockers forming a wall down the middle make it feel like there are fewer beds. There is a lot of communal space, having a television space with day bed and computer on the first floor and a back yard as well as the main reception/bar/dining/pool room. It is in the heart of Lapa, the main area for going out. There is a nice cat called Carlota too.

Disliked: There is no recycling and no washing machines to use. It states that there is a cafe, but this isn't true, and the bar is also only open for a couple of hours each Friday and Saturday. You cannot bring in external alcohol. I found one member of staff a bit annoying and the night receptionist speaks absolutely no English or Spanish. The en-suite bathroom is a bit grotty, with one of the two toilets permanently broken and small cubicles with often cold showers. All these negatives are only minor though: I would certainly recommend it.

Liked: Great location, right in the heart of Lapa with metro station 10 mins walk away to get to the beach. Breakfast was good and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Music was on loud in the main reception area until 6 in the morning one night with people up drinking. I know this as heard it all night and it was only turned off just after I woke up. Now I'm all for people having a good time but due to the nature of the building the music echoes around the rooms which are upstairs with people often leaving the doors open. The staff on duty didn't seemed concerned about those of us trying to get some sleep and I would have thought music off at 12-2 would be beneficial to all guests.

Liked: Manga Hostel had comfortable beds and a good location. The breakfast was good. The employees were good.

Disliked: It was 12 people per dorm, the dorm was hot often, there were way too many people in the dorm, the common room would party so late into the night screaming and chanting and playing beer pong. Who plays beer pong every night? I stayed there for 6 nights and I played on one night, but that kind of partying is childish, and the guests would play every night. Very loud, and they needed more fans, it is hot in this hostel

Liked: This hostel has the most friendly and helpful and fun staff of any place I have ever stayed! The location is also awesome, although it's a bit further from the beaches, it's so easy to catch a bus or the metro to them. Lapa is alive at night and so much fun to stay in with loads of character. The hostel is big and the atmosphere is really nice. The beds are great, we stayed in the 23 bed dorm and we thought it would be really cramped but it wasn't, large proper beds and enough space for everyone. An awesome place you stay, you couldn't have a bad time!

Disliked: It would be nice if breakfast could run just a bit later than 10am, and also have a bit more variation although the cheese and ham toasties are a treat!
