Fabulous 8.6 From 70 reviews

Very Good 8.0
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.

Better to book now, before the price goes up! The stairs to the bed was sketchy.
