I´ve stayed there 2 nights, it´s really a pity that I have a bad experience because i think this hostel could be GREAT. I´ve stayed in a 6 female bedroom (bad choice) it was the smallest room i´ve ever been and the worst thing is that was near the kitchen were everyone stayed there shouting until 5 am, and at the other side, from the window your ears will receive 2 different type of music and SO loud, I thought I was sleeping inside a discoteque.
The only bathroom we have was one also close to the kitchen that was used by all the hostel, so you´ll have to wait a lot to have a shower or just brush your teeth.
The bar at the terrace it´s really nice and because of the rainy days we couldn´t use it so much. Also the people that work there was great too, the brazilian guy was really really nice!
I hope this hostel get better because it has everything to be a great hostel.
