The beds were made daily, the bathroom cleaned daily and trash dumped, the bar had decent prices especially during happy hour, and the omelettes on the breakfast menu were delicious. The tour desk was very helpful and convenient and the front desk was friendly and approachable. This place has serious potential to be a GREAT hostel, but first they need a few improvements.
To improve, first they need a communal kitchen so you aren't forced to buy expensive restaurant food. There is an awesome grocery store nearby, but unfortunately you can´t buy anything that needs refrigeration because the kitchen staff at the hostel aren't too keen on you using up THEIR fridge space for your own personal items. They give you hassle every time you walk in there.The hostel has a “Snack Menu“ but unfortunately, the prices are not exactly budget and there isn't many vegetarian options other than fries and salad. Secondly, their movie room needs major technical support. Its great that they have one, but barely any of the DVDs worked and they were really sticky with something someone had previously spilled. The dorm room shared bathroom seriously needs a fan or a window for ventilation because everything gets soaked by one shower, and the whole room sticks if someone goes poo. Lastly, they need a sign next to the sign saying they accept MasterCard indicating that they charge an extra 6% to use a card. Otherwise, checking out last minute inhibits a surprise charge that sucks.
All in all, for what we paid there a night per bed, there is room for improvement.
