“don't book the double room!”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

it only has a window onto an interior courtyard which leads to the kitchen, so you can't really sleep with your window open unless you are ok with everyone peering into your room on their way to the kitchen. so the room gets really really hot. the bed is hard and uncomfortable. there is no ventilation in the bathroom, other than a window in the shower which gives directly onto a utility closet\office so if you open it, you are essentially taking a shower with the cleaning staff. at approx $80 USD, this double room is a real rip-off.

i had booked for 2 nights and after the first night when i asked to cancel the second night, they refused and told me it was against their policy. i guess their policy is to have very unsatisfied guests.

to be fair, the dorms looked cool and the kitchen was well stocked and clean.

Reviewed 3 June 2012

I booked a twin private room. When I got there, they provided a double room and told me there is no twin private room and maybe it was an incorrect information in website. Once there was an an auxiliar bed, I decided to stay. But the room is a dark basement, not a regular room. The walls were moist: full of mold and humidity. Bed linen stinks. It's an unhealthy place to sleep. After two hours I decided to leave the place: staying overnight would give me an allergic attack.

Nesse período tivemos um problema de umidade no quarto devido a uma obra no imóvel vizinho, mas efetuamos uma reforma no quarto e o problema foi solucionado.
