Me and my boyfriend stayed there for two nights, in a private room with private bathroom. The bathroom was completely unusable and extremely disgusting. Music from the kitchen and garden kept us awake during the night and i became very unpopular (also among the staff) when I tried to turn down the music late at night. Staff were just as...

This hostel does seem to do some things right, but nothing is worth the terrible or broken facilities, hard and un-sleepable beds, lumpy and hard pillows and lack of air conditioners or even fans in some dorms. It does have some social activities, nice backyard and the staff were pretty nice, but unable to make up for the terrible quality....

Lamentablemente este lugar necesita mejor dirección e inversión. Pagué por la habitación mas cara para tener baño privado pero la ducha no funcionaba y tuve que irme sin bañar. Las sábanas llenas de manchas, el colchón viejo y con mal olor, una pena realmente porque las fotos de la pagina prometian otra cosa. Mi habitacion (Nro.12) quedaba al pie de...

Great hostel. Private room was decent although a bit hot (but staff provided us with a fan when asked). Good kitchen and lovely outside social area. Staff very friendly. Hot and clean shared showers. Best part was the free and plentiful wine provided at night.

Stayed here 3 nights in the double bed room. The sheets were not the cleanest, but other than that the room was really nice. The atmosphere was not my favorite, as it seemed like people were not very interested in getting to know each other. There was a cool outside area with tables and a swing chair and hammocks, which...

This hostel was standards enough; nice common room, above average breakfast, helpful staff at the front desk who make signing up for events super easy. Downsides were the nasty bathrooms, one of which flooded twice during my stay into the hallway, and the fact that there were bed bugs! I spotted a bug on my sheets on my second night,...

The free wine really encourages travelers to meet and get to know one another in the kitchen. I met a number of people who were willing to go on bike tours of wineries and the high mountain tour. The hostel has a number of touristic connections that are great and pretty affordable if you don't have a plan already. They...

Stayed here for 2 nights, after initially booking for 3, woke up in the morning covered in BITES from BED BUGS. Used a sleeping bag liner and still managed to be bitten so the mattresses must be infested. We managed to get our money back for the 3rd night. Free wine doesn't make up for the inconvenience of having to...

Plenty of pros to this hostel.. Nice friendly multilingual staff, ood excursions and events offered, comfortable beds, free breakfast (albeit it being very sweet and bread orientated), free wine between 7-9 and good wifi throughout hostel. The one this that was quite frustrating was that the electricity stopped working on both days there in my room from 10am onwards therefore...
