Good 6.0
Could be Better
Everything was clean and the staff friendly and professional. However, the amenities left a lot to be desired. The Hostel is Old, and somewhat run down, although the bathrooms have been remodeled. It is still not worth it for the price. Could be in a better location as well

Great pool
I loved the pool and patio area. It was fabulous. The room did not have air conditioning and wifi did not work in the dorm. The hostel was generally clean and breakfast was good.

Great stay
Stayed here twice once in double room with private bathroom and once with shared. The hostel itself is really nice with a pool and seating area outside to soak up the sun. The rooms are spacious but could do with a bit of renovation but beds were comfy. Staff are really helpful and laundry is cheap. Breakfast is really nice and plentiful and the wi-fi works really well. Kitchen has everything you need to cook a good meal. They also let me store luggage for a week as we went to Easter island. Overall a great stay.

lovely Hostel, in a peaceful area, close to the Me
Fantastic Old House, bit creaky all the time, so you can not be quiet. Lovely staff, very helpful, The only thing l would add is that it would be convenient to have a mirror in the rooms, there is a sink, but to brush your hair put on makeup even, etc etc it would be good not to have to go to the shower room/ toilet.
