This hostel is not the best neighborhood. I went out the 2nd night, I didnt feel good on the way from night bus...I needed to go 10 blocks through streets where homeless people exchanged their stuff, many suspicious persons coming out from appalling bars...even though I was going in the middle of the street (where was at least some light) I expected a knife in my back...really bad feeling. I was not going out in the night again after this experience.
The hostel itself is advisable, with big room, clean bathroom, working internet connection and
close to one end stop of the cable car. The location not.
