The double rooms are overpriced for what you pay. We stayed 5 nights & they did not clean the room once or change the bed sheets. It was noisy & we only stated as everywhere else was booked. The laneway it us situated on has a great backpacker vibe. The staff are awful people to deal with. They were unfriendly...

We discovered this place at around 10pm whilst roaming around the gated lane looking for another hostel (ive forgotten its name). The lovely owner Sophia popped out of the door and showed us around. We stayed in number 20 I think - the one at the end of the street and it was great. Quiet, clean, good comfey beds and...

I really cannot recommend staying in The Girl from Ipanema Hostel! The air condition was not working for 5 nights, the rooms were dirty and smelled like mold... But the worst thing was, that we had to find out, that the secuity cameras are not working AFTER somebody broke up my locker and stole my purse, with cell phone, camera...

I was sick with food posioning and I thought I was booking into the Hostel Harmonia as recommended in my guide book. Despite the high price and dirty looking room I stayed (because I was too sick to go looking elsewhere). It turned out to be the worst hostel I ever stayed in my life, and I have stayed in...

I was on GFI for four days. The beds were confortable, just the room was really hot, even with the fans, and small for 10 beds. The bathrooms were clean, always had paper and just once the floor was really wet and disgusting, but most of the times it was really clean. The lady cleaned our room everyday. The breakfast...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here on 2 occasions during our trip. The first stay was purely by luck of bumping into a hostel with availability for one night with a private room. We had bunk beds but did not mind and the room was very cheap. The hostel is very run down and the not so clean. The towels...

“Make sure you check the rooms first. DO NOT pick the building at the very end on the right (Going into the alley, the furthest house on the right). A good call would be the third or fourth building on your right. Some buildings/rooms are much cleaner than others.”

“Our room on the top floor, described as a "suite" was like a sauna. Horrible.”
