"Loved the individual lockers with key cards. Amazing concept and very neat. This place is so close to the beach, it's wonderful. People say that the beach is man-made, so it isn't that nice. But that depends what you…"

Liked: Good location, funky common areas

Disliked: This was my first hostel experience and if I had to base hosteling on this- I would never do this again. The bathrooms were filthy, smelly, and there was a light in them that went off every two minutes while you're trying to get changed, use the facilities, etc. there was no hand soap or hand towels available half the time either. My bunk mates were obnoxious, which didn't help, but the bed and joke of a pillow were horrendous. There were also stains on both. The icing on the cake is that as an adult on holiday I should be able to enjoy a drink and cigarette if I please. This is a no drinking hostel and was told by staff that the outdoor decks close at ten and we couldn't go out for cigarettes after that. I'm not looking for a day care, was just looking for a place to stay.

Liked: I most liked about the hostel the great people you meet there! The stuff makes sure that you are having a great time and is there for you, if you need any help! The hostel is really close to the beach and you can reach the metro that brings you to the city within 5 Minutes. I would definatly stay at this hostel again! :)

Liked: Awesome atmosphere, everything beach themed, close to the beach, fantastic friendly staff, good breakfast

Disliked: Disturbed by people coming into the room at 4am and basically having a party in the room while we were trying to sleep, and ignored our requests that they let us sleep. However this is no way the fault of the hostel, just unfortunate that there were these very rude people.

Liked: Great common areas and good clean bathrooms with a large amount of showers. The female Swedish promoter (sorry can´t remember her name) that took us out to Shoko on Monday night was amazing and got us a great deal!!

Disliked: The location is a 4km walk from the gothic quarter. We also stayed 4 nights at another hostel in the gothic quarter for the same price. The hostel also allows young school groups to stay there which is very annoying and takes away from the experience. We also had a bad experience with a promoter (brown curly hair) - she made us leave for the club about 2 hours earlier than everyone wanted to go promising to get us a good deal and did not even give us the drinks.

Liked: Amazing place to stay!! 15 minutes walk from Opium and Choko, close to pubs and bars. Located in a very safe and lighted district two blocks from the beach. Had a lot of free space areas for companies up to 20 people. Stuff is very friendly and envolvent))

Disliked: It is usual for hostels, but seems to be too small rooms. I stayed in 6 bed dorm and it was fine, because there were only my friend and one more guy. Anyway if someone wants to open baggage, others should be out or stay on beds.

Liked: Close to beach and grocery store. Area was pretty nice. Breakfast was decent. Dinner can be bought as well. The keycard lockers were cool.

Disliked: Bit far from most attractions, although the metro is close and efficient. Couldn't connect to WiFi, others had problems as well. There are only 2 public computers to use. Can be a bit of a party hostel. A dude was passed out in the toilet stall in the dark. Also, lights in rooms automatically go out at 23:00, only reading and night lights remain.

Liked: This is a great hostel. Very clean and modern with a fantastic atmosphere!

Disliked: The only thing I would say is that it is not a hostel for someone who is looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay. It is most suitable for people who want to party all night and sleep/sunbathe all day.

11 July 2013 Jeff would recommend this property

Liked: Everything was vibrant clean and very inviting. A close walk to the beach and a five minute walk to the metro. Lots to offer such as a large kitchen space, computers, washer and dryer, and clean bathrooms. Seemed like there was always something going on every night downstairs. Fun and exciting atmosphere for any type of traveler. The rooms were cleaned daily and sheets and pillows were free. The temperature of the rooms were on the cooler side but not cold. The front desk was very helpful and friendly at all times of the day.

Disliked: The only problem I encountered was when I tried doing laundry and they ran out of coins for the machine. It wasn't a big deal but that was the only snag I ran into. The front desk helped out with other laundry mats in the area.
