The WiFi was very good, although it was first difficult to connect. Through Facebook it didn't work out and I didn't want to publish anything to my feed. Luckily there was small button at the bottom of the page which gave me direct access to the internet. The hostel was mostly clean, especially the bathrooms were clean. But the lockers should be cleaned better! It was very nice that the bed had curtains, although mine didn't have on both sides so I needed to use my blanket to cover the other side. Overall this hostel was okay but too expensive compared to others and its facilities.
The lockers were very impractical as it was hard to get stuff out of there and they were extremely noisy as well. And they needed it very big padlock so I needed to rent one because mine were too small. There was also someone's sock in my locker so the cleaning wasn't very good. Even though the breakfast was free, it was very poor abd only had the same cereal all the time. I'd happily pay a little bit to get at least a decent breakfast. I arrived to the hostel like 30 minutes after the check-in had began but I still needed to wait more than half an hour before getting into ny room, but they had some problem in their system so it was understandable but still not very nice. Also the shower rooms were not that practical as there was no place to privately put my staff.
Very friendly staff, the hostel is quiet and clean. They organize multiple events and go out parties every evening, so you'll definitely meet a lot of new friends. My stay was epic.
Great location, comfortable rooms, great addition of individual curtains creates a more comfortable personal space in shared bedrooms. Staff is very nice and informative, amazing walking tours (especially lead by Thiago), pub crawls and other activities.
Showers are far from bedrooms (another floor).
Really enjoyed staying here and would recommend 100%
This Hostel is just amazing, nice staff, wifi is great bathrooms shared but always clean , bunk beds have curtains to give you privacy and are designed in a modern way, in only 2 days I made friends with like 7 people from around the world ! , they do activities to make you engage , my first day was just for sleeping cause we were partying in a near club all night , but the other 2 days were amazing in the hostel, they also have living rooms, shared nice kitchen,free food , computers with internet and luggage storage
mens bathroom is much smaller than womens XD,yea cause i got into womans bathroom twice by mistake XD .
