I enjoyed the Chocolate Hostel for their service, location, and amenities. Having stayed at several hostels through my life I can say that this hostel has the spirit of any other hostel I stayed at in Europe or South America. You can sense the community feel when everyone gathers by the pool, bbq, or just hang out. The dorms are...

The hostel itself is not bad, but not good either. It's like the house I rent near my school. We have roommate in another room, we share living room and kitchen. Everything is OK except the smell. The room smells really bad. It's like some chemical elements all over the room. The bed is not clean. Anyway, I would not...

Dirty, noisy, stinky, drugs and smoke everywhere, the ideal pleace for dirty backpackers. You find descent rooms 2 blocks away from this, ... and cheaper. Terrible service, to be franc, it does not exist, swimming pool full of dog hairs, unbeleivable.

I was lucky to have only one nice roommate. It was great to have the whole apartment for ourselves. Location was great, pool was nice. It was nice to have a kitchen as well. I recommend it. Just don't have too high expectations and you will enjoy yourselves. The price is great!

There's not much to this place. The dryer sucks. There's no breakfast but there is a grill area with a couple picnic tables where everyone hangs out and smokes cigs. Besides that, the nonstop music is really starting to get on my nerves (it plays outside constantly). We are renting an apartment for a month an there's plenty of space,...
