10/10 Exceptional

Bruna couldn't have been more attentive to everything at this hostel/BnB. She runs the property with a couple of colleagues and they came every morning themselves to clean and restock the kitchen. Every little detail is an act of care on their part. The location is okay -- perhaps a bit further NW of the center of the city than I'd prefer, but the building has an elevator, which is a nice perk, and it's very close to many bus stops and the large daily market in the nearby square. Bruna made everything very easy for me. The AC and wifi both work well, bathrooms are very clean, kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need, and the balconies are very nice (though be careful of the mosquitos if you leave the doors open!). My only complaint (which is a matter of the room itself) is that the interior windows are painted for privacy but it allows the light through, so in this room, which is next to the entranceway, if people are coming in late, you'll get the light and the noise. The doors in the place are also rather loud. If you don't mind sharing the space with others and dealing with the noise of any communal house, this is a great choice for the value and I can't say enough about how nice and thoughtful the hosts are. Support their work!

2/10 Poor

Struttura fatiscente, non è un b&b. La struttura non ha bagno privato e speri che chi lo condivida con te sia un minimo pulito, cosa che non è successa nel nostro caso e abbiamo dovuto pulire il bagno da sole. Colazione non pervenuta se non latte scaduto da una settimana. Nella prenotazione non è presente nessuna descrizione dalla quale si evince che la camera privata non è privata con annesso bagno. Sicuramente non lo consiglierei.

8/10 Very good

situación excelente, Bruna, la anfitriona encantadora y amabilísima. No sabíamos que los baños eran compartidos, por lo que a la hora de la ducha por la mañana evidentemente nos tocó esperar y el desayuno lo preparan por la noche el día anterior para que la gente que salga temprano lo tenga todo dispuesto, es lógico, pero nosotros cuando nos dispusimos a desayunar a las 9 parecía que hubieran arrasado con los que había en la cocina, apenas quedaba gran cosa. Con Expedia se nos cobra la limpieza, 8 eur, ya lo sabíamos por las condiciones, pero tuvimos que fregar nuestra loza del desayuno, no lo veo muy lógico.
