Luna Castle was booked, so I stayed here instead hoping for the backpacker vibe. A mix of older and younger crowd, I did meet a lot of really awesome people. Omar, one of the managers, good man. There is also a group of locals that just hang out there, can't really say why, but it seemed like they were up to no good.
The hostel environment wasn't bad, but the location is rather poor. Perfectly safe, but away from all the action. There is a bus stop just outside that can take where you need to go but those things are hectic! Always ended up taking cabs.
I took a stroll through Old Town during my stay, and came across Luna's Castle. My god. Backpacker haven. The number of young, beautiful women and friendly people from all around the world coming in and out of there... I felt like I was really missing out. Old Town has some quite lively nightlife, I must add.
So if you want backpacker and can't do Luna's, this place is a good alternative.
