Fabulous 8.6 From 90 reviews

Very good 8.0
Worth but BEWARE
It was a nice hostel and there was a kitchen area too. It needs some more supplies especially when there are a lot of people in the hostel. The general area of the hostel always had a smell of bathroom which is unpleasant to come back from after a long day. I would suggest an air freshener in all bathrooms and one in the hallway too. The people working at the hostel were very nice and helpful but the people that stayed with us in the hostel room thought it was their house and would do whatever they wanted at all hours which is really annoying. I think there should be an age limit for the hostel as well because when older people of 55+ stay in the hostel with you for New Year's Eve and all they want to do is sleep, it can be annoying for everyone. Breakfast hours vary a lot even though they tell you that it is from 7:30-10:30. The people start cleaning up at 10:15 and they also do not restock coffee or other supplies. Once they are gone, they are gone. Also I think the hallways should have motion sensor lights because they are always on which is wasteful and unnecessary throughout the day and night. Oddly enough though the room lights only stay on for about three mins and then shut off. They are also not bright and extremely pointless to have. Good thing there are bed side lights which are super bright. But if you have the very top bunk like I did then you are out of luck and have to use your phone all the time. We had the room right above the bar which blasts music until 1am.

Good location and nice onsite restaurants
The Independente group has managed to create some really cool spots. Their restaurants are quite beautiful and get consistently good reviews. They’ve tried to translate that to a hostel, but I think have missed a trick somewhere. Place is nice, but lacking in atmosphere. WiFi rarely worked during my stay. Ask to not be on the top of the triple decker bunk beds. Otherwise rooms were big, bright and airy. Secure place, big lockers, and great location.
