Liked: Good location in a safe place near the Poblado metro station and 5-6 blocks from south terminal. Near good local restaurant and supermarket. Good wifi signal. Clean hostel in the common area. Nice kitchen.

Disliked: Dorm was full of volunteer with lots and lots of luggage everywhere that made it hard to walk around, wet towels everywhere. Dorm seperated from common area only by a curtain wich make it really noisy since the young kids who lives there go to bed really late and screams a lot. The staff/volunteer that lived in the dorm didn't seen to care either about noise since they were loud until late and woke up early and be noisy as well. No electric plug in the dorm and only a few in the hostel.Shower near the dorm is broken so really cold.

Liked: Nice people, helpfull staff, the price is right for the value

Disliked: Laundry service is just ridiculously expensive, rooms have very thin walls, for the "included breakfast" you get two slices of toast and two eggs to cook yourself, no butter, no jam.

Liked: Loads of things to do - tv, gym, billiards, darts, films - quiet time after 11pm with no after parties. Free coffee in the morning. Hot water, great wifi. Good communal kitchen. Friendly staff and great volunteers. Good location, near metro and centre of Poblado.

Disliked: It was quiet after about 11.30pm but a bit noisy in the mornings from about 8am (kids etc). Not too bad in the private rooms but the dorm only has a curtain, so a bit noisier there.

Liked: This is probably my 4th time staying here and I have to admit, they keep getting better and better. This time It was a short stay, but in my last trip I stayed almost a full month. The hostel is very good, great location, secure, nice residential area, and it is one of the very few hostels where people don't go partying, drinking and more. If you want a peaceful place, this is it. You get to deal directly with the owner and the place feels cozy. I highly recommend it.

Disliked: hmmm....I just wish they more rooms, since its usually always booked.
