Liked: The hostel is well located, very near the center of town, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, they even let us sleep on the couch when we arrived very early in the morning as check in time was not up yet, and booked all the excursions for us. The hostel is beautifully decorated and is one of the rare ones that does recycling! The wi-fi connection was good.

Disliked: It was a bit smelly when we first entered... but I didn't notice it anymore later.

Liked: Its quite central and we were let in at 5am and allowed to sleep on the couch in reception

Disliked: Staff are generally unhelpful and only interested in partying and sleeping with the guests. The kitchen was filthy, as was the terrace area (cigarette butts etc), and the bunk beds look like they're going to fall apart at any second.

Liked: Really nothing - only the other travellers were very nice

Disliked: The rooms are loud if they are next to the street ore dark if they are not, the beds are very old and you have to put the sheets on your own. The bathrooms weren't clean and there were not enough of them for all the travellers. I got a confirmation for a female 3 bed female dorm, but after the first night they decided without informing or asking me to take all my gear and give me a 6 bed mixed dorm - bad surprise when Icame back in the evening!

Liked: se encuentra en un lindo lugar de la ciudad y céntrico.

Disliked: nunca supimos quien es el encargado_a del hostel. el staff del hostel parece no estar disponible ni visible, en 3 ocasiones abrí la puerta porque nadie la atendía y nosotros mismos tuvimos que esperar. quisimos preguntar actividades para hacer y no pudimos encontrar a nadie a quien preguntar. el 2do día de nuestra estadía el desayuno no estaba pronto y eran las 8y30 de la mañana por lo tanto tuvimos que salir sin poder desayunar. aunque debo decir que le hice notar esto a una chica que estaba en la recepción y pareció considerar nuestra critica.

Liked: There was a problem when I arrived and the staff attempted to be helpful (although the problem was actually solved by another guest). Nice courtyard. Good location to the town centre. Not amazing but does the trick.

Disliked: The hostel is a while away from the beach, however this is due to the distance of the town itself. Seemed a little disorganised at times. Beds were not that stable, def try and get a bottom bunk!

Liked: The other people staying there were very friendly

Disliked: The hostel staff was not very friendly. More than once they lost the booking of a guest or made they switch rooms. Also the person who was supposedly working at the front desk was never there and the guests constantly had to answer the door and give answers to travelers.

Liked: Fantastic hostel with friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere between all the people staying at the hostel. Fantastic breakfast, hot showers and lots of common space to chill out and relax both inside and out. It is a nice small size so it does not get too loud and makes for a very friendly atmosphere.

Liked: Bathrooms were clean.

Disliked: Rooms were dark and dingy. Computer was in the same room with the TV so if someone was chatting via the computer you couldn't hear the TV. Open air kitchen made for an early evening because it was so cold and nothing stayed clean. Good for one night only if you need some place cheap to stay.
