This hostel was absolutely perfect for where I was and what I was looking for. Obviously I was on an island and rolling with the island vibe, and mondo enhanced all of that. It gave me an awesome home base to catch a quick nap (no bed bugs,) grab a few 50 cent beers at the bar, convene with some other travelers, and wake up to some pancakes and coffee to start my day of adventure. I was not looking to spend my entire day laying around a hostel/hotel nodding at others, I was taking it by the balls and trying to explore as much as I could, and mondo was a perfect center to call home. (for 3 weeks!!) Great staff, cute bartenders, and all around great time.
If looking for luxury, spend an extra 80 dollars and have it like the 70 year olds, if you're looking for an "experience" then stay at mondo taitu!
