8/10 Very good

4/10 Fair

Sei que era um Hostel, mas limpeza é fundamental!
Sei que era um Hostel, porém, limpeza é fundamental. Haviam alimentos podres na geladeira, e consequentemente o cheiro era péssimo, os armários da cozinha eram uma verdadeira bagunça e as louças e talheres estavam super mal lavados. Pra piorar, num determinado dia no horário de almoço alguns hóspedes resolveram fritar alimentos e todo o local ficou impregnado de fumaça e gordura. O ambiente e o bar anexo até são legais, mas ficou claro que os hóspedes fazem o que querem e os proprietários não estão muito preocupados com isso. Éramos para ter passado 4 noites mas fugimos após a primeira.
