    Staff were friendly. Lots of helpful information on tours and buses etc. Beds were comfortable. Located by metro and good internet.

    Floor in dorms was dirty and did not appear to be cleaned whilst I was there. Lacked space for luggage except lockers which didn't really fit backpack. Area around hostel had a lot of homeless. I felt the communal area were very crowded - perhaps due to weather. Credit card payments would be useful.

    Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Bit of a walk up hill to any local bars or restaurants but William makes great Caipraninas in the hostel bar! When we stayed there were lots of people to hang out with and go out with. The hostel offers things everyday and has lots of information about getting to/from places.

    No outside alcohol rule - just an FYI as we didn't see it before we arrived. Wi-Fi wasn't great in the rooms when we stayed. Elsewhere seemed to be fine.
