Michelle Stephens thinks…

"Cool vibe, neat decor and painting, soft/clean bedding, and quiet for sleeping, but loud if you head to the bar/common areas."

Liked: Perfect for a solo traveler,great location, great staff, great everything! I couldn't recommend this hostel enough!!! It does help to have a booking online in advance though because there were some room conflicts at times but they always worked it out in my favor. Stay here and book a taxi with them before you arrive the taxis are so much cheaper through them. STAY HERE! I had a great time and always felt safe and taken care of, and when traveling alone that is what matters!

Disliked: Sometimes the Wifi would go out but it would be back on within the day. Busy kitchen but they also offered great food in the bar.

Liked: The bar was a great place to hang out and the food was great as well, definitely get a milkshake! Be prepared to meet a lot of great people in an amazing atmosphere!

Disliked: The hostel is all open concept which is really cool until it's night time and it gets really cold, definitely bring some warm clothes and be prepared for a cold bathroom since the door is always open.

Liked: Free breakfast, plenty of showers, tours desk, bar, free movies room, free wifi, good clean bedding, airport pick up service and other taxis can be arranged, pretty building with a good atmosphere.

Disliked: Quite noisy, either from music or from the walls shaking (a lot) as people walk through the corridor, I don´t know why but it really echoed when staying upstairs, like elephants were walking in them, lol. No wifi in the rooms, but could not be helped due to the style of the building. I would and did stay here more than once, 4 times in fact.
