    I am pregnant and sick, I was traveling from Miami, I got tired, so I was transported by ambulance from the plane to the hospital, and he asked me to rest until I improved before my travel was allowed! That is why I came to the hostel and it was the worst choice! The stairs are long and tired and I am unable to carry a bag one times when the men or the blond employee at the reception were getting help. As for when the other employee was in it, I found nothing but ignoring! I asked for help in carrying the luggage from my room on January 20 evening. She asked me to return to her and someone will come to me to help me within 5 minutes. I waited half an hour without interest.

    Mixed bag

    Visited here many times... But first time in the 18 person room. Only one small bathroom which was shower and toilet combined, not ideal. Shower fixtures badly corroded. There were a few non tourist residents who were smoking something which wasn't tobacco, and overall it felt less friendly than at other times of the year (in terms of guests). Staff members were friendly and generally helpful, and no major problems (my key card had to be reset, something that happens a lot). Would come again but not in a 18 person dorm which is far too crowded

    Safe stay, yes, but good stay, no

    Once I eventually found the entrance, thanks to Google Maps and even then it was like a quest to find the Holy Grail, check-in was smooth and friendly. It was a bit confusing finding 115A, and it being triple deck bunk beds (I've not seen that before!) was an unpleasant discovery. Even so, the place was reasonably clean and the lockers were a very good size. The shower, I'd have not minded the timer function if it was set to longer than 2 seconds! Having to constantly hold down the button, and with a non-moveable shower head, was a real pain in the rear end to deal with. Those steps are a bit slippy to the upper bunk too, and I fell off it partway down, landing against the bathroom door. Wasn't impressed! Noisy drunken guests in the courtyard until nearly midnight did not help the situation. The bedding was great, better than what I use at home, but the bed itself was uncomfortable. The free WiFi, while it was a nice-to-have, barely showed up on my phone as an option. When it did, it didn't last long before it went again. I used my own data service instead, so I wouldn't need to keep wasting time on WiFi that doesn't really work. Check-out was nice and easy, hand over the card and away I went. Didn't stay for breakfast, I had a flight to catch. Would I stay again? In a desperate need, yes, otherwise no.
