It's a shame as this hostel has potential- nice space to chill out, cute dog and big kitchen. Expensive for what it is- better hostels for cheaper with breakfast over the road. Staff moody especially blond with frizzy hair. Lost our booking after returning late from the amazon- originally sent us out at midnight to find elsewhere until we demanded...

This is a great hostel for backpackers who aren't overly bothered about the standard of facilities (mostly average although cleaned every day). Despite the showers and Wi-Fi being occasionally temperamental, generally the staff are very helpful and happy (1 notable exception who you will guess I'm sure if you stay here) and Santiago the owner is great. Located maximum a...

This should be a great hostel. There is a cool bar/TV/games room area and two other spaces to socialise. The rooms are OK and the showers are hot. However it is definitely not a party hostel (as it claims) and some (not all) of the staff there just are not doing the hostel justice. We had to argue with one...

I ended up going to Vibes after finding out the hostel across the road was full. The good: 1. Comfy lounge with sofas, telly and computers. Shared dorms were clean and spacious. 2. Nice quieter part of Mariscal with a great breakfast/fresh fruit juice local diner round the corner (breakfast is not included, unlike the hostel across the road) The not...

Facilities are not good, bathrooms are absolutely grim. No atmosphere what so ever, checked out after one night. Pros are that the dorms are pretty spacious and the location is great, but that's about what the hostel has going for it. When I checked out the lady in the front desk tried to charge me more than what my booking...

Nice clean and friendly hostel. Well located in the new part of town but only a short but ride away to the old town where you can do a free walking tour. Lots and lots of restaurants and cafes in this area to chose from.

Overall this is a good little backpacker hostel. Its in the heart of new town with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby (although the area may seem a little dodgy to some). The rooms were generally clean, spacious, bathrooms sufficient, wifi worked in the lobby only. Staff were really fantastic and helpful, they are great at giving directions, sorting out...
