Liked: I loved the location and the people.this is the best location for warm nights to hang put on the rooftop where they have a great bar and cool music.some nights they even have a live dj.the Bartenders are great and the drinks are very cheep ;) cool place to hang around even in the afternoon since they have the barbeque on:)

Disliked: There was pnly one bathroom for 12 people and it was quite hard to catch it available...there was no cleaning service for the whole 4 days i spent there it was dust and trash all over the place...i stayed at their other location before that and the difference was quite huge, they had the rooms cleaned 4times a day!

Liked: Why would I recommend this hostel? I think it's in a really good location if you want to party at night, there are plenty of clubs right in front of the door. If you want to sleep without hearing loud music until 6am, you should avoid Deco Walk. Otherwise you'll be fine ;). It's easy to get there by bus line #150 and only a two block walk from the bus station. I wasn't able to try the beach, because I was only staying over night, but it's really only a footstep away.It's basically a cheap option to be in the middle of the party.

Disliked: I stayed at Deco Walk for one night only and was a bit disappointed. The pictures look much nicer and more spacious on the web. My locker did not work (could not open it), I got a dirty towel and there was still dirty linen on my bed that I had to remove myself. I didn't make a fuss out of it, because I arrived late and was tired and my roommates were already sleeping. But the staff was not very welcoming either. I went up to the roof terrace, which is indeed really nice, in order to grab a drink, but there was not vibe up there and the bar had just closed (at 11pm). In the morning there was no breakfast (ok, I left quite early, but still.... a hot cup of tea would have been nice). The offered coffee from a flask was luke warm and not drinkable.

Liked: I liked it. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm. That are attached to another 6 bed dorm. which if you do your homework you'll know. Which I think is slightly misleading especially with the price of the bed. It is relatively clean. I liked the bed, it was soft. It is closer to more ammenities, and right across from the beach. which makes this a great hostel. The breakfast is simple, coffee, cereal, and bagels. Enough to get you over for the morning. Its not going to be lavish, its a hostel. They serve dinner as well at 6. I was never there or had just come in from eating out. It looked good. people were eating it without complaint. I loved the tree lounge which is on the roof top. Nice prices for a drink $9. I loved the bartender, she was so sweet. It was my Birthday Night so it made it special. I had a great 25th there.

Disliked: I didnt go with them at night because the places are higher than they should be for a backpacker. Other than that I really didnt have anything I didnt like. The staff is nice.

Disliked: I have no negative comments. I loved the Deco Walk.
